I am 22 year old female. My ophthalmologist suggested me to have central corneal thickness test. I found this test is for the glaucoma diagnosis. Should I proceed immediately?

Yes sure, it is to check your corneal thickness and correlate it with your eye pressure. On other thoughts, why are you hesitant to do the test when your Ophthalmologist has already ordered for it.
