Buffalo, NY (Feb. 16, 2021) – Reichert Technologies® -- a business unit of AMETEK Inc. and a global leader in designing, engineering, and manufacturing high-quality diagnostic instruments and equipment for ophthalmologists, optometrists, and eye care professionals -- is excited to announce the launch of the Tono-Vera™ Vet Tonometer with ActiView™ Positioning System. This innovative new tonometer for the veterinary market provides quick and reliable animal intraocular pressure (IOP) in just one measurement. Tono-Vera Vet utilizes rebound tonometer technology, which eliminates the need for a topical anesthetic.
Tono-Vera Vet Tonometer features the advanced, patent-pending ActiView Positioning System, which displays a full color view of the eye with intuitive features that guide the user to the apex of the cornea. When properly aligned, the Tono-Vera Vet measures automatically, producing reliable results in a single measurement. This provides confidence in obtained IOP readings every time.
“We are pleased to provide veterinarians a solution for obtaining quick and reliable IOP measurements. Voice of Customer has been an essential part of our innovation process. By consulting veterinarians in the research and development phase, we can deliver a solution that we hope will exceed our customers’ expectations,” said Ian Lee Bennett, Reichert Business Unit Manager.
Dave Taylor, Director of Product Management and Business Development at Reichert, has partnered with veterinary experts to develop Tono-Vera Vet from the ground up. “It’s very impressive how easily I am able to get a reliable reading in just one measurement. A quick and easy measurement helps to reduce any added stress on our patients,” said Kevin Kuhn, DVM, of Afton Animal Hospital in Williamsville, New York.
Tono-Vera Vet has two battery model options to choose from: Rechargeable and Standard AA. The Tono-Vera Vet Rechargeable Model ensures its always ready to use. Meanwhile, the Tono-Vera Vet AA Model goes anywhere and allows for a quick and easy battery change with no tools required.
Designed with the veterinary professional in mind, Tono-Vera Vet is ergonomic and lightweight. It includes a base that stores and dispenses single-use Ocu-Dot™ Tonometer Probes and is the only veterinary tonometer available with Bluetooth®, making your present and future data transferring need easier than ever.
With a heritage in tonometry dating back over 75 years, Reichert continues to pave the way for trusted and reliable animal IOP with Tono-Vera Vet Tonometer, which is proudly designed, engineered, and assembled in the USA.
