My evaluation Icare ONE tonometer arrived today. I will compare it to:
* Icare TA01i
* Reichert 7CR Tonometer
* Pascal Dynamic Contour Tonometer
* Ocular Response Analyzer
* Reichert AT555 Tonometer
* maybe another one or two tonometers...
Look for a full review in the near future on FitEyes.com. UPDATE: I have decided not to publish my review of the Icare ONE at this time. Please read Are handheld or portable tonometers appropriate for home eye pressure monitoring?
Let me offer an analogy. If I were reviewing golf clubs, I would not include a review of a baseball bat. A baseball bat is not appropriate for playing golf. During the process of evaluating the Icare ONE, I came to a broader conclusion about all handheld tonometer and their appropriateness for self-tonometry (home eye pressure monitoring). Therefore, I feel it is better to have that general discussion first. You can read my thoughts here: Are handheld or portable tonometers appropriate for home eye pressure monitoring?

For now, here are some pictures of my evaluation Icare ONE tonometer.
Just arriving via FedEx (below). Some tonometers it will be evaluated against are shown in the background.
Icare ONE in the carry case (below). The probes are also shown, including one probe outside its container in the lower right of the case.

Icare ONE and Icare TA01i side by side (below) with Pascal Dynamic Contour tonometer and Ocular Response Analyzer in the background. These other tonometers are the most accurate in the world. We'll see how the Icare tonometers stack up.
