All rights reserved, FitEyes LLC8 History Fiteyes pioneered the modern era of home monitoring with Reichert tonometers Fiteyes has had a win-win relationship with Reichert for a number of years FitEyes started promoting the Reichert AT555 for self-tonometry in 2006. Fiteyes published a Top 50 research paper in 2009 that prominently featured Reichert tonometers. This paper turned the tide for home monitoring. FitEyes community members have been using the AT555, R7, and 7CR (and ORA) since at least 2006 with great results Over 150 (and growing) published articles on FitEyes.com mentioning Reichert tonometers FitEyes was one of the first, if not the very first, Reichert distributor to strongly embrace the 7CR in early 2010 FitEyes facilitated selling several hundreds of Reichert tonometers around the world; including a very high mix of top-of-the line units
