Keeler has introduced a new disposable applanation prism, Tonomate, to facilitate safe and fast Goldmann applanation tonometry.

"Tonomate prisms are manufactured to the high quality associated with the Keeler brand and designed to fit most applanation tonometer prism holders," said a Keeler spokeswoman. "Each prism is individually packed in sterile packaging and can be fitted easily without requiring direct contact.  The prism is discarded after use to streamline eye examinations and prevent the cross-infection of diseases between patients that can be transmitted via the tear film," said the spokeswoman.
