UltrasoundOcular ultrasound can be helpful in imaging ocular anatomy in cases where due to opacities it is not possible to visualize all structures of the eye during the comprehensive exam. It helps to detect intraocular tumors, retinal detachments, lens luxation, or other abnormalities. Evaluating the orbit via ultrasound can help to detect retrobulbar cysts, masses or infections. In most cases an ultrasound can be performed on short notice with the patient being awake.
