iCare Tonometer – Skip the “Puff of Air” Test

Do you dread going to the eye doctor because you know you’ll have to get the “puff of air” test? When you visit Family Eye Care for your comprehensive eye exam or pediatric eye exam, you won’t need to go through the “puff of air” test. 

At Family Eye Care in North Andover, we use a wonderful new method to evaluate your IOP (intraocular pressure) called the iCare Tonometer. We strive to make our patients feel relaxed and comfortable during exams, while simultaneously gathering the most accurate exam results as possible. The iCare Tonometer is one of the ways we accomplish this goal. 

The iCare Tonometer is advanced technology which can measure the pressure within the eye without the use of eye drops or the “puff of air”. The device is handheld and uses a light probe to accurately measure the pressure within the eyes within 1 – 2 seconds. 

Don’t put off your comprehensive eye exam because you dread the “puff of air” test! We can measure your IOP (intraocular pressure) quickly, painlessly, and accurately, without subjecting you to the discomfort of the “puff of air” test.
