Pachymetry is a special technique widely used in ophthalmology for diagnosing the cornea issues. Using special ophthalmology equipment, doctors conduct the necessary measurements of its thickness and also assess the overall corneal condition. Such kind of diagnostics is an integral part of eye examination, without which it would be difficult to make an accurate diagnosis and start pathologies treatment.
Examinations of this type are very important not only for diagnostics but also for preoperative measures during laser surgery. To conduct pachymetry, the patient is asked to lie on a couch, and then, local anesthesia is conducted. Using a pachymeter, a doctor calculates the corneal thickness.
To avoid injury, a specialist touches the eye with the device very slightly, minimizing the pressure on it. After the procedure, all the data received is displayed on the monitor. The diagnostic procedure is completed by using antibacterial eye drops.
The main operation principle of the device is ultrasound or optics utilization. The device accurately identifies even subtle inconsistencies in the corneal thickness.
There are two types of ophthalmic instruments on the market:
Optical pachymeters. They look like special nozzles, used for slit lamps. They consist of two plane-parallel plates, located one above the other. The lower plate is fixed, and the upper one rotates. The corneal thickness is measured using a chart which is located on the nozzle’s handle.
Ultrasound devices. This type of pachymeter is considered to be more simple and convenient to use. Equipped with a touch screen, it may trace different errors and have adjustable operating frequency parameters. The data received is displayed on the monitor and, if necessary, printed.
In modern medical care industry, ultrasound pachymeters are often utilized. We recommend choosing models with an immersion system, which are characterized by several measurement ranges. To avoid mistakes while purchasing, it is worth focusing on the following device features and functions:
possible measurement ranges;
ultrasound speed in the medium;
memory card availability;
possibility to automatically calculate the average value for a number of measurements (5-10);
ultrasound probe frequency;
permissible errors in measurements.
The prices of some instruments can be as low as 1500 USD or less, while the newest, high-tier systems may cost as much as 8300 USD. Well-known brands of pachymeter in the United States are Ritter, Hill Labs and SMR. Outside of the US, top-selling brands are Medstarand Schmitz. Besides, one should understand that new and demo machines will cost more than refurbished or used ones. What is the difference? New machines have never been used. They have the manufacturer’s warranty. Demo machines are, as a rule, exhibition models. They have not been used in clinical practice but they have been often presented at exhibitions. As a result, the pachymeter price is lower. Refurbished machines are used machines that have undergone improvements (refurbishment can be done at the manufacturer’s facilities or in private repair shops)
