The average corneal central thickness is about 535 microns. BUT that's like saying the average man is 5 feet 7 inches. It doesn't mean a 6 footer is abnormal.
This would be of concern only if there was a disease of the cornea like Fuchs dystrophy that was making the cornea thick due to fluid (edema) collection or in glaucoma where a very thin cornea increase the seriousness of disease (in glaucoma a thicker cornea is a GOOD thing). She will need to get clarification from her "eye doctor'
i wanted to make and eye lazic surgery few days ago but there was a problem in my eye cornea that it was too thin the doctor told me that we shell wait for few months following any change otherwise we might do a thickening surgery now the question is that how can i thicken my cornea without that surgery ???
