What is Corneal Hysteresis Measurement?
Corneal hysteresis measurement is measuring the corneal hysteresis, which is how long the cornea takes to use up energy. These measurements are usually taken by a special device, called an Ocular Response Analyzer.
The cornea is a clear, protective layer on the outer part of your eye. The cornea, as well as the sclera (white portion of the eye), protects your eyes from germs, dirt, and other things that can hurt your eyes. The cornea can also keep out some ultraviolet light from the sun.
Another important job your cornea does is to help you see. The cornea can help your eye see objects close and far away. The cornea does this by bending or refracting light with its curved edge as it enters your eye. Certain diseases and other health issues can disrupt this and cause damage to the cornea and other parts of your eye.
What Can Corneal Hysteresis Measurement Help?
Corneal hysteresis measurement can help detect how healthy or unhealthy the cornea is before refractive surgery on the eye. Corneal hysteresis measurement can also help detect glaucoma early on. Please contact one of our specialists today to see if you qualify or have any questions concerning corneal hysteresis measurement.
Why Would an Optometrist Perform Corneal Hysteresis Measurement?
Specialists perform corneal hysteresis measurement to catch certain diseases early on, see how healthy or unhealthy the cornea of the eye is, and to measure any abnormalities of the eye prior to surgery. Diseases such as glaucoma can be detected in the early stages by getting the corneal hysteresis measured.
Glaucoma more pressure on your eye, which in turn can cause a number of problems, such as damaging the optic nerve, blindness, and impaired vision. It is of imperative importance to get your eyes checked for early stages of glaucoma so that our specialists can treat your eyes to help you keep your sight and your eyes in a healthy state.
