Ocular ultrasonography is a non-invasive diagnostic imaging test that uses sound waves to generate an image of internal structures within the eye. The test is similar to an obstetrical ultrasound used to examine a baby in the womb, only in a smaller format designed for the eye.

Ultrasonography is often necessary when diseases such as corneal edema, dense cataract, severe intraocular hemorrhage, or intraocular inflammation prevent the doctor from seeing into the eye.

Ultrasonography can detect conditions such as:

  • Retinal Detachment
  • Diabetic Retinopathy
  • Retinal bleeding
  • Intraocular tumors

No anesthesia is needed for this test. A small amount of water-based gel may be applied to the eyelid. This test is performed in our office without requiring an additional trip to an imaging center or hospital.

What Does My Doctor See?

Your doctor can evaluate the health of the retina using this imaging technology. This technology allows your doctor to detect diseases of the retina at early stages and has made timely intervention possible in many cases.
