How Does the ICARE HOME TONOMETER Work?
Patients set the Icare tonometer according to measurements established by their doctor during training. The device gathers IOP, date, time, eye (left or right), and a quality score.
The device knows whether you’re measuring the left or right eye. You’ll see a red-light-green-light display. This lets you know when you’re at the right distance from the instrument and the device is angled correctly.
You won’t see the IOP measurement. The device needs to be plugged into a computer. The data is then transmitted to your Eye Physicians of Long Beach eye care provider using special Icare® CLINIC software.
Future versions will likely offer wireless transmission to cloud storage, allowing your eye doctor to download it.
How Does the Icare HOME Take Measurements?
A disposable probe is inserted into the Icare® HOME tonometer every time you use it. The probe gently contacts your eye during measurement.
A complete measurement is a series of six very rapid measurements. The probe moves to the cornea and back during each of the six measurements. The tonometer then calculates the final eye pressure and stores it in memory.
