Corneal pachymetry is a vital tool for glaucoma diagnosis and management used at Brantford Eye Care.
What is Corneal Pachymetry
Corneal pachymetry performed at Brantford Eye Care is the measurement of corneal thickness and is performed using a pachymeter. A thin or thick cornea affect eye pressure measurements – it is therefore always useful to measure the thickness of the cornea when evaluating IOP readings.
How is it done?
Your eye doctor at Brantford Eye Care will drop of anaesthetic on the eye before the test is performed. A probe is used to gently touch the surface of the cornea to take the measurements. This test will take only a few minutes to perform.
Before your appointment for corneal pachymetry at Brantford Eye Care, your contact lenses will have to be removed.
