Canon has received FDA 510(k) clearance for the TX-20 full-auto non-contact tonometer. The device can be used with a touch of one button when in fully automatic mode, or a peak intraocular pressure (IOP) can be set so that the device issues a warning message when that pressure is reached.

From the press release: If a high IOP is detected, a warning message is displayed. The operator can enter any threshold value on the unit’s settings screen to activate the warning system for that value. When in Full Auto mode, the TX-20 Tonometer is a one-touch operation for IOP measurement of both eyes. With one press of the start button, the unit automatically aligns and measures the intraocular pressure of both eyes. The compact and lightweight TX-20 Tonometer weighs approximately 33 pounds and comfortably fits on an instrument table with a Canon Non-Mydriatic Retinal Camera (each sold separately). Keeping the Canon ophthalmic units next to one another can help to expedite the exam process.
