iCare HOME2 patient story
iCare HOME2 helps you keep track of your IOP around the clock
Intraocular pressure (IOP) reduction is the only proven method for slowing glaucoma progression. It’s not enough to measure IOP a few times a year in the clinic, since IOP peaks often occur outside of office hours. IOP varies throughout the day and night and IOP variation in glaucoma patients’ eyes is, on average, three times higher than in normal eyes.
The iCare HOME2 is a self-tonometer that revolutionizes glaucoma care by allowing you to measure and monitor your IOP anytime, anywhere. At-home measurements may help reveal IOP spikes that would have otherwise gone undetected. You and your healthcare provider have round-the-clock access to the IOP results.
As part of the bigger picture, getting accurate real-world IOP trends can assist your doctors in making care decisions. Having access to ample IOP data aids your doctors in reviewing the effects of prescribed medications or an eye operation. It will also help your doctor personalize your glaucoma care.
Intuitive device for easy, quick, and comfortable measurements
iCare tonometers are based on the widely patented rebound tonometry principle. In an iCare measurement, a tiny disposable probe is gently bounced off the surface of the eye six times quickly. The rebound measurement is safe and barely noticeable. The ease of use, accuracy, and reliability of iCare tonometers has been validated in numerous clinical studies.
The iCare HOME2 comes with simple training materials and is designed for you to use in a home setting effortlessly. It will guide you to take high-quality measurements, without the need for anesthetic, drops, or air.
iCare HOME2 is lightweight, fits well in the hand, and lets you measure your IOP whilst sitting down, reclining, or lying down, from the comfort of wherever you are. The device comes with a smart light guide that helps you position the tonometer correctly for accurate measurements. The iCare HOME2 stands upright on the table and comes with adjustable forehead and cheek supports.
User-friendly software for easy monitoring and sharing
The PATIENT2 mobile app for both Android and iOS platforms displays iCare HOME2 measurement results and instantly shares them with your doctor’s CLINIC platform. The simple user interface lets you follow your own measurements that are displayed in a graphical or list format.
You can also access iCare CLINIC via a web browser to review your information using a patient account created by your healthcare professional. This empowers you to understand your own condition and care journey, actively collaborating in the process, and providing valuable information that can help your doctor tailor a treatment plan for you.
If your doctor is not using the iCare CLINIC platform, you can alternatively subscribe to the iCare CLOUD platform which lets you share your measurement results with your doctor.
