How TONO Works

The ultimate goal is to help people managing their glaucoma have a more actionable relationship with their condition through more frequent at home monitoring and a telemedicine application to connect people with their healthcare professionals.

Managing and monitoring glaucoma is a daily chore that starts every morning.

TONO lives in the bathroom as part of a morning routine.

Pick up the tonometer device from the charging dock.

Measure your eye pressure. The reading will display on the dock all day long.

Eyedrops are taken throughout the day, so you can bring the case with you.

All data, including pressure measurements and eyedrop logs are saved in the telemedicine application.
