What causes corneal thickness in eyes?
This doctor says that not every doctor routinely checks the cornea , and pressure can even vary from room to room.
Is it truly the case that some doctors do not check for thickness routinely or repeatedly miscalculate the pressure? Thank you.
No, all doctor dont measure corneal thickness routinely
Welcome to health care magic and thanks for posting your question to us.
No, all doctors dont measure corneal thickness routinely, they just measure intraocular pressure and if it comes on higher side than doctors measure corneal thickness as well to find out the underlying cause for high intraocular pressure.
Corneal thickness can also lead to high IOP. In my opinion you should follow your ophthalmologist's advise to find out the underlying cause for high IOP which can be caused by number of conditions like hypertension, glaucoma and many other ophthalmic conditions.
Hope I could answer your question, please feel free to ask follow up question, if you have any more queries, I will gladly answer you.

In my opinion you should follow your new ophthalmologist for further investigation to find out cause for high IOP as well as corneal thickness and accordingly take the treatment.
