Pachymetry is a simple, quick and painless test to measure the thickness of the cornea and is essential for patients with corneal abnormalities as well as patients with glaucoma. When combined with standard intraocular pressure measurements, pachymetry gives your ophthalmologist a much more accurate prediction of glaucoma development. Currently Medicare does not offer a refund for this test.
