Tonometry (Eye Pressure Measurement)

Measure the pressure inside your eye using a noncontact tonometry with an "air puff".
To determine whether you have glaucoma, a disease which causes pressure to build up inside your eyes and may result in blindness. The normal eye pressure range is 10 to 21 mmHg.We use applanation-tonomater too. The surface of the eye is numbed with eye drops. The lamp is moved forward until the tip of the tonometer just touches the cornea.

Greeting

It is said that we are gaining 80 percent of the outside information through our eyes. Because we live in the information-intensive society nowadays, we tend to overuse our eyes at any times, and tend to suffer from various kinds of eye troubles.
Therefore, ophthalmological checkup and care has become significant.
If you have any concern about your eye condition, please feel free to consult us.
We will provide careful treatment and will try our best so that you can receive our consultation with full satisfaction.
