Ultrasound Pachymetry

  • When diagnosing various eye problems, including glaucoma, Ultrasound Pachymetry allows us to better prescribe a course of treatment.
  • When measuring the pressure of the eye for glaucoma, many measurements are inaccurate because the front surface of the eye, or the cornea, is thicker or thinner than normal.
  • Pachymetry, or the measurement of the thickness of the cornea is an integral part of the Glaucoma examination.
  • Thin corneas alone, regardless of the eye pressure, have also been found much more often in people with glaucoma.
