Ultrasound examination of the eye

Ultrasound examination of the eye:  An eye and orbit ultrasound is a test to look at the eye area, and to measure the size and structures of the eye. Ultrasound is useful when an ophthalmoscope or slit lamp cannot view the posterior part of the eye because the inside of the eye is cloudy or something is blocking the line of sight. Ultrasound can be used to determine the nature of abnormal structures, such as blood or tumor inside the eye.
