Much of the increase in unit sales will be due to the growing market for Goldmann contact tonometers, which is closely tied to the sales of slit lamps, and portable electronic tonometers. Currently, more than twice as many contact tonometers are sold annually than non-contact, however, at one seventh the price of non-contact, the contact device account for a minority of the market.
A tonometer is a device that is used for measuring the intraocular pressure of an eye. Elevated intraocular pressure is associated with glaucoma, a disease that is characterized by the degeneration of the optic nerve. Tonometers are segmented into contact or non-contact types. The market for contact tonometers consists of both Goldmann tonometers and portable electronic, or hand held, tonometers. Portable electronic tonometers have been on the market for approximately 25 years. However, these devices have recently had success in new areas. In particular, optometrists have been adopting handheld devices in recent years. Goldmann and handheld contact tonometers are not direct competitors. Most ophthalmologists have a Goldmann but many are also interesting in having a handheld device on hand as a secondary tonometer.
