Increasing demand for pachymeters over the conventional methods like topography, tomography & microscopy led to the burgeoning growth of pachymeters market.
Valley Cottage, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/17/2018 -- Pachymeter is used to measure the thickness of the cornea and technique is called pachymetry. Pachymeters are handheld devices used for evaluation of cornea molding, LASIK procedure and screening of glaucoma in suspected cases. It is used in estimating corneal pump function and corneal barrier function. Pachymeters are also used to measure corneal rigidity, assess corneal hydration and functions of corneal endothelial cells. Pachymeters works on two principles namely: optical and ultrasound pachymeters. Optical pachymeter principle is based on measuring the apparent thickness of the optical section. This method completely depends on the relative rotation of glass plates, which are mounted on each other. Optical pachymeter measurement is proportional to cornea apparent thickness, whereas true corneal thickness is determined by using the reference standard. Because of its complexity, this technique is not used often. Ultrasound pachymeters offer an advantage of relative ease of use and these instruments are portable. The accuracy of ultrasound pachymeters completely depends on the application of probe perpendicularly to the probe and precise probe placement determines the reproducibility of measurements. Additionally, ultrasound pachymeters are equipped with glaucoma risk calculator.

Pachymeters Market: Drivers and Restraints
Increasing demand for pachymeters over the conventional methods like topography, tomography & microscopy led to the burgeoning growth of pachymeters market. Due to the emergence of technology, pachymeters became an integral part of ablation procedures like LASIK surgeries and evaluation of cornea molding. Furthermore, pachymeters are used for routine ophthalmic evaluation due to corneal thickness is an independent indicator of glaucoma. It also has a wide range of applications in measuring ocular hypertension that increased demand for pachymeters in ophthalmology. Along with these, pachymetry is cost effective when compared to alternatives like microscopy, portable and high ease of use. Ultrasound is even considered as a golden standard for corneal thickness measurements. Pachymeters has a wide range of applications like diagnosing corneal physiology and corneal ecstatic conditions, it further increased the demand for pachymeters. All these factors fueled the growth of pachymeters market.
The requirement of topical anesthesia, the risk of infection, epithelial ablation and patient discomfort has led to the adoption of alternative methods over pachymeters. These factors restrained the growth of pachymeters market.
