Introduction (continued)
Device Description
The Reichert Tono-Pen VET is a precision electronic tonometer which
measures intraocular pressure (IOP). The body of the instrument is
specially designed to fit comfortably in the user’s hand, facilitating fast
and accurate measurements. The stainless steel probe on the TonoPen VET contains a solid state strain gauge which converts intraocular
pressure (IOP) to an electrical signal. The probe tip must be covered by a
protective membrane. Reichert Ocu-Film ® Tip Covers are recommended.
Utilizing a sophisticated “single chip” microprocessor and electronics
housed in the body of the instrument, the waveform produced by each
touch to the anesthetized corneal surface is analyzed and stored for a
statistical comparison process. Each single valid IOP reading is digitally
displayed on the liquid crystal display (LCD). When four valid readings are
obtained, the mean IOP and the standard deviation for those readings (an
indication of reliability) are shown on the LCD.
Features
The Tono-Pen VET tonometer has the following features:
• Easy to use - IOP can be measured reliably by veterinary professionals.
• Portable - The Tono-Pen VET tonometer weighs just 59.4 g (2.1 oz) and
is battery operated.
• Accurate - The measurements from the Tono-Pen VET tonometer
correlate strongly with Goldmann applanation tonometry and direct
measurements of IOP.
• Versatile - The Tono-Pen VET tonometer may be used easily with the
patient in any position, making the instrument suitable for the office, in
glaucoma clinics, at the hospital bedside, and in remote locations.

Setup (continued)
Calibration Procedure
The Tono-Pen VET unit is internally calibrated, thus the instrument
calibration should be checked only before the first use each day or in
the event of unanticipated readings. Calibration must be routinely and
successfully performed once daily prior to instrument use. Calibration
should also be performed whenever it is indicated by the LCD display,
when batteries are replaced, or after an unsuccessful calibration. It is not
necessary to check calibration prior to each use.
1. Point the transducer end of the Tono-Pen straight down towards the
floor. Refer to Figure 5.
2. Depress the Operator’s Button two times rapidly. The time between
the first and second button press must be between 0.5 and 1.5 seconds. The Tono-Pen will “beep” and display [CAL].
3. Wait approximately 15 seconds for the Tono-Pen to “beep”. The display will change from [CAL] to [UP].
4. Immediately (within 1 second) invert the Tono-Pen smoothly, pointing
the transducer end straight up. Refer to Figure 5.
5. A properly functioning Tono-Pen will display [Good] followed by a
“beep”.
6. Repeat this Calibration Procedure if [bAd] is displayed.
7. After [Good] is displayed, depress the Operator’s Button one time and
the Tono-Pen will display [8888], followed by a single row of dashes,
[- - - -], and then by a double row of dashes [====] followed by a
“beep” tone, indicating the instrument is ready to measure IOP (Depressing the activation button a second time will interrupt this process
and send the unit to calibration mode).

68E3527 Rev. H
Setup (continued)
Calibration Procedure (continued)
If several consecutive attempts at checking the calibration are unsuccessful:
•Loosen or remove the Ocu-Film Tip Cover from the Tono-Pen VET
probe tip and repeat the calibration check.
•Spray the probe tip with compressed gas, and repeat the calibration
check.
•Replace the batteries and repeat the calibration check.
Note: If [CAL] appears followed by a row of four dashes [- - - -], the unit
did not go into calibration mode. To correct this, press the button
quicker two times or slower two times.
Note: Do not take measurements with the instrument if two consecutive
[Good] calibration checks cannot be obtained. The instrument
will not take a measurement when the prior calibration check was
[bAd].
Note: If the Tono-Pen VET fails to yield a [Good] calibration, call Reichert
Technical Service.

Instructions for Use
Performing IOP Measurements
WARNING: OCU-FILM CONTAINS NATURAL RUBBER LATEX WHICH MAY
CAUSE ALLERGIC REACTIONS. QUESTION PATIENTS ABOUT ALLERGIES TO LATEX BEFORE EXAMINING THEM WITH THE TONO-PEN VET.
WARNING: DO NOT USE AN OCU-FILM + TIP COVER ON MORE THAN ONE
PATIENT TO HELP PREVENT CROSS CONTAMINATION.
Note: Refer to the Reichert website for instructional videos.
1.Instill a drop of topical anesthetic onto the eye to be examined.
2.Position and secure the patient to minimize eye movement.
Note: The Tono-Pen VET unit will function in any stable position.
3. Hold the Tono-Pen VET unit as you would a pencil and position yourself to facilitate viewing of the probe tip and patient’s cornea where
contact will be made. For normal corneas, central corneal contact is
recommended.
4. The corneal surface needs only to be momentarily contacted. Indentation or excessive pressure is not required and may lead to injury to
the eye. Refer to Figure 6.
CORRECT
INCORRECT

5. Hold the Tono-Pen VET so that it is perpendicular to and within 1/2
inch of the patient’s cornea. Refer to Figure 6 for correct positioning.
6. To initiate an IOP measurement, depress the Operator’s Button once,
and only once.
7. Initially you will see a brief display of [8888]. This is a self-test of the
LCD (Liquid Crystal Display).
Note: If any of the LCD segments are not displayed, the Tono-Pen
requires service.
Note: If a momentary display of [CAL] is seen, followed immediately
by a single row of dashes [- - - -], it indicates that the Tono-Pen
requires calibration before it will measure.
16
68E3527 Rev. H
Instructions for Use (continued)
Performing IOP Measurements (continued)
8.If a double row of dashes [====] is seen and a “beep” tone is heard,
it indicates that the Tono-Pen is ready to measure IOP. Proceed with
applanation within 15 seconds.
Note: After acquiring the double row of dashes [====], if more than 15
seconds elapses prior to applanation, the Tono-Pen will not measure. The software will have initiated a battery-saving function,
indicated initially by the display of a single row of dashes [- - - -],
then followed in sequence by a blank display [
]. A new IOP
measurement can be initiated by depressing the operator’s button
once.
Note: Anytime the operator’s button is depressed twice within 1.5
seconds, (which may be caused by operator’s inadvertent pressure on the button) the software will interpret this as a demand for
calibration. Then a sustained display of [CAL] will be seen which
initiates the calibration sequence. The calibration sequence must
be successfully completed before further measurements can be
accomplished.
9. Once activated, after [====] is displayed and a “beep” tone is heard,
gently apply the Tono-Pen VET tip to the cornea in a brief tapping
motion. Repeat several times. The corneal surface needs only to
be momentarily contacted. Indentation or excessive force is not
required and may lead to inaccurate readings or patient injury.
10.A chirp will sound and a digital IOP measurement will be displayed
each time a valid reading is obtained. The single horizontal bar at the
bottom of the LCD, indicating statistical reliability, will not be displayed
with each single IOP measurement.
11. After four (4) valid readings are obtained, a final beep will sound and
the averaged measurement will appear on the LCD along with the
single bar denoting statistical reliability.
Note:If a single row of dashes [- - - -] appears on the LCD after the final
beep, an insufficient number of valid readings was collected. If this
occurs, repeat the patient examination procedure, starting at step 1.

Instructions for Use (continued)
Performing IOP Measurements (continued)
To take another measurement, reactivate the Tono-Pen VET unit by
pressing and releasing the activation switch as described in step 5.
Note: If not reactivated within 25 seconds, the Tono-Pen VET unit will
automatically turn off and the LCD will clear, placing the device in
sleep mode, to conserve battery life. If this occurs, activate the
TONO-PEN VET by pressing the Operator’s Button once.
12.Replace the Ocu-Film Tip Cover before using the Tono-Pen VET unit
on another patient and before storage.
Note: Failure to replace the Ocu-Film Tip Cover between patients may
result in unreliable readings of IOP by allowing debris to enter the
transducer assembly.
Note: A reused Ocu-Film Tip Cover may leak. This may cause damage
to the strain gauge and void the Warranty.

Instructions for Use (continued)
Interpreting the LCD Screen
The number display represents IOP in millimeters of mercury (mmHg.) A
number with a single horizontal bar displayed at the bottom of the LCD is
an average of the valid measurements. A number without the single bar is
a single measurement of IOP. Refer to Figure 7.
The display of one of four horizontal bars located along the lower border
of the LCD block indicates the statistical reliability of the averaged
measurement. For example, if the 5% bar is displayed, the standard
deviation of the valid measurements is 5% or less of the number shown.
If the reliability measure is 20% or > 20%, a repeat measurement is
recommended.
A single row of dashes [- - - -] indicates that the instrument is activated.
Two rows of dashes [====] followed by a “beep” indicates that the
instrument is ready to take measurements.
• [CAL] indicates that the instrument is in

Cleaning & Maintenance
Cleaning Instructions
The Tono-Pen VET tonometer may have difficulty
taking measurements or display [bAd] after
a calibration when its tip is dirty and requires
cleaning. When the Transducer Assembly of the
tonometer has dirt and contaminants in the tip,
cleaning of the tip is necessary. When the tip
contains contaminants, it cannot move freely and
the Tono-Pen VET may have erratic readings and
then show a [bAd]calibration.
Figure 8
Cleaning the Tip
1. Remove Ocu-Film + tip cover from the tonometer, if one is installed.
2. Using canned air, place the tip of the Transducer Assembly against the
outlet of the canned air as shown in Figure 8.
3. Blow the canned air into the tip of the tonometer for approximately 3
seconds.
Note: It is necessary to blow canned air directly into the tip so that the
contaminants are pushed out.
4. After cleaning the tip with compressed air, the Transducer Assembly
will be cold. Allow the Transducer Assembly to warm to room
temperature.
5. Perform the calibration as indicated in the Calibration Procedure
section of this manual.
Note: If the tonometer does not calibrate [Good], then repeat the above
cleaning instructions. Do not clean more than 3 times in a row. If
the tonometer still will not calibrate [Good], contact Reichert.
Note: Never use the Tono-Pen VET tonometer without an Ocu-Film + tip
cover installed.
Note: O
cu-Film + tip covers are the only manufacturer approved covers
for use with the Tono-Pen VET tonometer. Use of any other type of

transmitter manufacturer and d is the recommended separation distance in meters (m).
Field strengths from fixed transmitters,
as determined by an electromagnetic site
survey, should be less than the compliance
levels in each frequence range.
Interference may occur in the vicinity
of equipment marked with the following
symbol.
Note 1: At 80 MHz and 800 MHz, the higher frequency range applies.
Note 2: These guidelines may not apply in all situations. Electromagnetic propagation is affected by absorption
and reflection from structures, objects and people.
* Field strengths from fixed transmitters, such as base stations for radio (cellular/cordless) telephones and land
mobile radios, amateur radio, AM and FM radio broadcast and TV broadcast cannot be predicted theoretically
with accuracy. To assess the electromagnetic environment due to fixed RF transmitters, an electromagnetic
site survey should be considered. The measured field strength in the location in which the ME Equipment or
ME System should be observed to verify normal operation. If abnormal performance is observed, additional
measures many be necessary, such as re-orienting or relocating the ME Equipment or ME System.
* Over the frequency range 150 kHz to 80 MHz, field strengths should be less then [V1] V/m.
