Eye & Orbit Ultrasound

An eye ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves to produce detailed images of the eye and detect abnormalities affecting the patient’s vision.

Why the test is performed:

It is performed to detect vitreous or retinal detachment, intraocular hemorrhages, crystalline disturbances, presence of foreign bodies and eye tumors.

How it is performed:

The patient must lie on a stretcher and close his or her eyes. water-soluble gel is applied on the superior eyelid and then the high-frequency transducer is placed above each eyelid to perform the analysis on both eyes.

How to prepare for the test:

No preparation is required for this test.
