Ultrasound eye scan 25/03/2013
An ultrasound eye scan is an examination to observe the area of the eyes and measure their size and structure. It is used to detect retinal or vitreous detachment, intraocular haemorrhage, lens alterations, presence of foreign bodies and the presence of eye tumours. It also helps to analyse the eye's muscles and the retroocular region.
For an ultrasound eye scan, high frequency sound waves are used that pass through the eye (previously anaesthetised with anaesthetic drops) and their reflections form an image of the eye's structure.
