Glaucoma Awareness Week, TAKAGI Ophthalmic Products Used to Diagnose Glaucoma
12th March 2020
World Glaucoma Awareness Week is taking place between the 8th – 14th of March this year. This article is highlighting the TAKAGI products used for glaucoma diagnosis, in particular for testing the intraocular pressure and the visual field.
TAKAGI offers two ophthalmic products for measuring the inner eye pressure (IOP), as follows:
- AT-1 Applanation Tonometer with S12-18 Reusable Prism

One of the main causes associated with glaucoma is fluid build-up in the anterior part of the eye, called aqueous humor. This fluid can damage the optic nerve as it presses on it. Read more about the importance of IOP here.
