Icare for Human eye pressure measurement

The Icare tonometer is based on a new measuring principle, in which a very light probe is used to make momentary contact with the cornea.
The measurement is barely noticed by the patient and often does not even cause corneal reflex.
For ophthalmologists this is good news, because the device not only makes IOP measuring a more pleasant experience on all patients, it is also an important break-through for succeeding with non-compliant patients (i.e. children and dementia patients).
The easy usage and dynamic patient flow obtained by the Icare tonometer makes it a very important instrument for general practitioners, optometrists, occupational health care and other medical personnel. Requiring no drops or specialized skills for its use, the quick and painless Icare tonometer has an important role in glaucoma screening programs of masses.
 
 
Rebound Technology
 
 
Icare rebound tonometer was developed to find a new, easy and patient-friendly method of measuring intraocular pressure. It is a major breakthrough obtained after a decade of development work by Finnish MD Antti Kontiola. The realization of the rebound method and its equipment has involved a number of partners, including the Helsinki University Eye Clinic in the clinical testing, and the Mount Sinai Medical School in the US in developing the veterinary modification of the instrument. Unique technology enables safe, painless and hygienic procedure .
Rebound technology is based on a rebound measuring principle, in which a very light-weight probe is used to make momentary contact with the cornea.
In rebound technology, the motion parameters of the probe are recorded during the measurement. Induction based coil system is used for measuring the motion of the probe. Advanced algorithm combined with state of the art software analyzes the probe deceleration, contact time and other parameters of the probe while it touches the cornea.
The deceleration and other rebound parameters of the probe change as a function of IOP. In simple terms, the higher the IOP, the faster the probe decelerates and the shorter the contact time.
Icare rebound tonometers do not require any maintenance calibration or regular service. The tonometers dont have any parts that wear out, except for the probe base, which can become dusty or collect some particles that affect the probe movement. The probe base can be changed by the user as described in the user manual.
 
Anaesthesia is not needed since the touch of the probe is so gentle and the measurement is barely noticed by the patient.

FAQS
 
1. Is the Icare measurement painless?
Measurement is painless, the light-weight probe touches the cornea momentarily and some patients dont even notice the measurement.

2. Is it possible to hurt the eye with Icare?
If the device is used according to the instructions given in user manual, the light-weight probe cannot cause any damage to the patients eye.
 
 
3. Is the Icare measurement result accurate?
Several independent studies prove the accuracy of Icare readings. Extensive bench testing and clinical studies have also been performed to ensure the accuracy and repeatability of measurements.
 
 
4. Why six measurements?

Six measurements are required to provide accurate measurement results by eliminating the variations caused by operator error and heart rate.
 
 
5. Does Icare take into consideration CCT?
Icare tonometer is calibrated for average CCT just like the Goldmann tonometer.

6. Can Icare be used with contact lenses?
Yes, but depending on the type of contacts the tonometer readings may be affected by the contact lens. Soft daily disposable lenses (and some soft 2-week or monthly lenses) affect the reading only slightly. Hard contact lenses have a significant effect on the reading and should not be worn when measuring the IOP with Icare tonometer. For most accurate measurement results use of any contact lenses is not recommended.
 
 
7. Can Icare be used after eye surgery?

Yes, but consider that some of surgeries e.g. LASIK and similar surgeries may change the thickness of the cornea (thinner cornea => lower /false IOP)
 
 
8. Can Icare be used when the eye is infected?

Yes. Just remember that the probe used to measure the infected eye cannot be used again, even for measuring the non-infected eye of the same patient.
 
 
9. Does the corneal shape and radius influence the IOP reading taken with Icare?
No. The area of contact is so small, that the measurement is not influenced by these aspects.
 
 
10. Can anesthesia still be used?

Icare is designed to be used without applying topical anesthetic. For most accurate measurements, we recommend not to apply topical anesthetic when measuring with Icare tonometer. It is possible to measure anesthetized eye but the readings may be affected by the swelling caused by topical anesthetic.
 
 
11. Is it possible to load probe wrong way?

No, its not possible to load the probe wrong way. The mechanical design of probe and probe base makes it possible to insert the probe in a correct way.
 
 
12. Can I re-use the probes?

Icare tonometer uses single-use disposable probes. Probes should never be cleaned or sterilized because the process and handling can damage the probe resulting in unreliable measurement results or even damage the tonometer. However, same probe can be used for measuring the same patient within reasonably short time period.
 
 
13. Can same probe be used to measure both eyes of one patient?

Yes, same probe can be used to measure both eyes of one patient if the patients eyes are healthy. If the patient has infection in one eye or if there is any doubt that one eye may havea disease that can be transferred from eye to eye, the healthy eye should be measured first. A probe used to measure an infected eye should never be usedto measure a healthy eye. If in doubt, always use a new probe.
 
 
14. How probes will be disposed of?
Probes can be disposed of according to the hospital/clinic/practice standard regulations.
 
 
15. Does Icare require calibration?
Icare tonometers do not require any maintenance calibration or regular service. The tonometers dont have any parts that wear out, except for the probe base, which can become dusty or collect some particles that affect the probe movement. The probe base can be changed by the user as described in the user manual. The calibration can be checked if theres doubt about the measurement results. In such case, you should contact your local dealer/ distributor.If the tonometer requires service, for example has been dropped to the floor, you should also contact your local dealer/ distributor for further instructions.
 
 
16. How can I get Icare LINK software?
Icare LINK software can be downloaded from Icare website. Icare ONE or PRO device is needed when downloading the software. Installing automatically identifies device serial number and registers the tonometer with details given by the user.
 
 
17. Is Icare link software free of charge?
Yes, Icare LINK is a free accessory software for Icare PRO and ONE tonometers.
 
 
18. How can I see the exact measuring results from Icare ONE tonometer?
With Icare LINK software the Icare PRO user can see the exact measuring results from Icare ONE. Icare ONE user can see the measuring result as range, measuring quality and date with time. The measurement data can also be entered manually.
 
 
19. Can I use Icare LINK software with Icare TA01i?

No, Icare TA01i model can not be linked to Icare LINK software. But any results can be manually feeded to the LINK software.
