NEW USTH CEO Rev. Fr. Herminio V. Dagohoy, OP
 
 

The University of Santo Tomas
Hospital Eye Institute has recently
acquired the ICAREPRO
HANDHELD TONOMETER and
KONAN SPECULAR MICROSCOPE
to further expand its diagnostic
capability.
 

The IcarePro handheld Tonometer measures the pressure of the eye. It is portable and suitable for screening and monitoring patients with glaucoma. It is very accurate and is comparable to the gold standard, applanation tonometer. It is more convenient because of its portability and smaller probe that touches the cornea. This in turn gives less discomfort to patients.

 

 

The Konan Specular Microscope is used to examine the corneal endothelium. It is the layer that lines the back of the cornea. The information provided by specular microscopy contributes in the diagnosis of corneal diseases that are not easily detectable by regular ophthalmologic examination. The procedure is safe, quick, and provides relevant information that can help anticipate successful outcomes in patients undergoing eye surgery.
