pachymetry

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.
