Ultrasound examination of the eye (US Eye) - method of diagnosis in ophthalmology by using ultrasonic waves.This method is safe and very informative.With this method manages to detect a variety of intraocular abnormalities that can not be detected clinically with opacities of optical media.Using Doppler ultrasound is possible to investigate the blood flow in the vessels of the eye.Ultrasound diagnostic method allows to obtain a plurality of images and allows you to explore the eyeball as it moves.


1. Blurred optical media.
2. Intraocular and intraorbital tumors.
3. Intraocular foreign body (its identification and localization).
4. Pathology of the eye socket.
5. Measurement of the eyeball and eye socket.
6. eye injuries.
7. Intraocular hemorrhage.
8. Retinal detachment.
9. Glaucoma.
10. The pathology of the optic nerve.
11. Vascular pathology.
12. Condition after eye operations.
13. myopic disease.
14. Evaluation of the treatment.
15. Congenital anomalies of the eyeballs and orbits.


1. Injuries eyelids and periorbital area.
2. Open eye injuries.
3. retrobulbar bleeding.

preparation for the ultrasonic eye research is needed.

The patient lies down on the couch and closes his eyes.The doctor does to the patient's eyelids special gel, which provides contact of the sensor with the eyeball.Then touch the sensor ages ultrasound machine gentle pressure on the eyeball.The doctor during the examination will lead the eye position of the patient's apples.This is done in order to display the ultrasound monitor unit all the necessary inspection structures.

Eye ultrasound

Ultrasound eyeball normally looks dark.In front of its departments can see two bright vertical line - is the lens capsule, the back surface is more convex.Before the lens is visible dark space bounded by the front convex vertical light line (cornea) - it is the anterior chamber.The optic nerve is visible as a dark stripe behind the eyeballs.The retina is only visible when its detachment.The procedure when conducting it does not cause discomfort.

duration of the procedure may take an average of 5-10 minutes.
