CANON TX-20 FULL AUTO TONOMETER asily measures Intraocular Pressure (IOP) allowing doctors to perform simple eye exams efficiently, while enhancing patient comfort with a soft air puff. The advanced intelligent 3D fully automated operation makes operating the instrument extremely simple; just press the button. The TX-20 will align and measure extremely fast, even the print-out and paper cut off are done automatically, reducing examination time. This test is important in evaluating ocular conditions that affect the pressure inside of an eye, such as Glaucoma.

SELECTABLE MEASUREMENT MODES
The three-dimensional tracking system of the TX-20 Tonometer features a wide range of movement so that the examinee’s pupil can be detected easily. When in Full Auto mode, the unit is a one-touch operation for IOP measurement for both eyes. Just press the start button, and the tonometer automatically aligns and measures the intraocular pressure of both eyes. For added flexibility, Auto and Manual measurement modes are included.
EXTERNAL FIXATION TARGET
For patients with central vision defects, the TX-20 Tonometer incorporates external fixation that can easily be activated from the LCD screen.
VISUAL RELIABILITY AND INDICATORS
When a reading cannot be made, the TX-20 Tonometer display will show a snapshot of the examinee’s eye along with the measurement error. The operator will know immediately whether it was an eyelid, eyelash or the eye being out of position that caused the error. The operator will then be informed on the next action to take such as adjusting the chin rest or limiter.
HIGH INTRAOCULAR PRESSURE (IOP) WARNING
Whenever high IOP is detected, a warning message is displayed. The operator can enter any threshold value on the unit’s settings screen to activate the warning system for that value.
COMPACT AND LIGHTWEIGHT
The TX-20 Tonometer is designed with comfort in mind — for both the operator and the patient. It comfortably fits on an instrument table with a Canon Non-Mydriatic Retinal Camera (each sold separately) to help streamline the exam process. And, at approximately 33 pounds, the TX-20 Tonometer is easy to transport and install.
MULTIPLE INTERFACE MODES
The TX-20 Tonometer provides data output using RS-232C and LAN connections, and data input using USB connections.
MULTIFUNCTION COLOR LCD MONITOR
The 5.7-inch color LCD monitor tilts 40° making the TX-20 Tonometer easy to use whether the operator is sitting or standing. The clear LCD display also includes multi-functional screen buttons allowing the operator to switch menus as needed.
MOTORIZED OMNI-DIRECTIONAL JOYSTICK
Aligning the patient’s eye is made easier using the motorized Omni–directional joystick with a fine focus dial. All positioning may be performed with one hand allowing the other hand to work with the patient if needed. The top of the joystick button includes the start button which can immediately be pressed once the patient is properly positioned.
INTEGRATED THERMAL PRINTER
Internal memory provides storage of up to 10 measurements for each eye, listing them in the order they were taken, or by reliability. A print-out can be set up to automatically print. The front-loaded built-in printer includes an auto cutter, making it simple to remove the print-out. New paper rolls (sold separately) can easily be inserted through the feeder.
