Looking for an affordable NC tonometer in Italy or Europe

Hi to all,

I'm an italian guy (33 year old) diagnosed with evolved pigmentary glaucoma in the right eye. I've already lost about my 34% of visual field there, and I'm scared as hell to become half blind in the future. I thnk that self tonometry is one of the very important things I can do to prevent that, to fight back, I mean. But here, seems impossible to find an affordable non-contact tonometer.

 Just saw a used AT550 on ebay.  I wanted to ask a couple of questions.  I read some past posts that suggested that the AT550 wasn't good for self-tonometry.........why is this??  Sounds like you just look at something, push a button, and it takes the measurement.  Sounds fairly user-friendly.  Also, if I were to buy a used instrument, how much do you think it would cost?  How much are one of these new??  Thanks for your answers on this one.
