Icare ic100, Handheld Contact Tonometer
  • Description
  • Icare® ic100 - the tonometer for all eye care professionals. The device is based on a rebound measuring principle that requires no drops, air or specialized skills for its use. New premium design and user interface.


    Icare Probes:

    Measure eye pressure safely without air puff, anesthetic drops or other preparation. The Icare® tonometers are safe because of the use of a single-use probe.

    Icare® tonometers work on a patented rebound principle, in which a light-weight probe moves in a magnetic field and makes momentary contact with the cornea. The measurement requires no air or anesthetic drops.

    The probe is a gold-plated metallic wire – which enables probe’s accurate movement in the magnetic field - and a small plastic tip made of medical grade plastic that gently touches the cornea. The probe’s weight and straightness tolerances are very tight to ensure repeatable IOP measurements.

    Icare probes are individually packaged for safe and contamination free measurement of each patient. The probes are designed for single-use only and they should not be cleaned or re-used. Cleaning or mishandling the probe can damage it and affect the accuracy of the measurement results. Re-using probes could cause cross contamination of bacteria and it may shorten the life cycle of the device.

  • Testimonials
  • « It was great meeting you today. We are thrilled to have your Icare handheld tonometer! Taking IOPs on kids has been a huge problem for us. Many young children who require freq IOP checks often need to go to the OR for an exam under sedation or anesthetic. Doing this poses risks for the child and very costly to our institution. To reduce OR visits we have been sending uncooperative kids to visit local psychologists for behavior mod to improve compliance (again costly and time consuming) Your instrument has really increased our ability to obtain a pressure on kids. I have had great success with many children that I could never get a pressure on. We are also getting rave reviews from patients and families. We actually have cancelled 4 OR visits on previously noncompliant kids since we trialed the Icare. It really is a major breakthrough in measuring the eyes of non-compliant patients. I plan to do a little article for our hospital news letter about how this new technology is saving us money. »   —    Read full testimonial

    « We have been very pleased with the Icare tonometer, and this purchase which has meant that much fewer children have needed to have examinations under anaesthesia for intra-ocular pressure check, freeing much-needed operating time for other children. »   —    Read full testimonial

    « (...) We had first seen the Icare tonometer at another office in Red Deer. Once a month we hold a clinic there. After using it in that clinic, we decided that we would like to try one in our office in Edmonton.

    We found it very easy to use. Training new staff members was very quick and simple, only a few minutes. We found it to have a higher range of pressures than our older tonopens. Our old ones ranged from 6 to 30, where as the Icare tonometer ranged from 2-40. We found it more efficient because we could skip the step administering Alcaine before checking pressures. We found it less maintenance as our old tonopens needed constant cleaning.

    We found that patients loved it too. Repeat patients all commented on how much easier it was for them. Problem patients who couldn't keep their eyes open before had no trouble with the Icare tonometer.

    It has been a very good experience using this product. On top of a great product, the Representatives at Topcon have been very friendly, knowledgeable, and very helpful.

    Thank you very much. »   —    Read full testimonial

    « The Icare tonometer has been one of the best purchases I made in a long time. It is very accurate and I have been able to take measurements on patients as young as 3 years of age. Occasionally I will find that the younger patients will have pressures around 20mmHg and perhaps that is related to the stronger/tighter cornea?? It will be interesting to monitor these young patients over time for glaucoma as they have not had accurate measureable IOPs via NCT or Perkins or Goldman due to cooperation issues.

    My staff is able to perform these measurements with the Icare tonometer, I prefer to do it myself to keep the consistency on the measurements and I feel the confidence of the user helps relax the patient with any equipment that comes so close to the eye.

    It has been invaluable to our nursing home visits...the patients are much more comfortable with this than with the Perkins tonometer. »   —    Read full testimonial
