A simple test to measure corneal thickness
Pachymetry is the technique
used to measure the thickness of
the cornea, the clear structure in
front of the eye. The measurement
is quick and painless. It can be
done during a regular comprehensive eye test.
Why is Pachymetry important?
Pachymetry measures corneal thickness, which is necessary to get accurate eye pressure readings.
Pachymetry is critical to calibrate pressure readings of the eye. These readings can assess the risk of glaucoma.
Corneal thickness is also important to determine if a patient is a suitable candidate for refractive eye surgery.
Determining high or low pressure readings can aid in a proper treatment plan and diagnosis.
