Ophthalmic Ultrasound

Ophthalmic Ultrasound

Ultrasonography is a non-invasive method to examine and measure the eye and is not associated with pain or side effects. The eye is a perfect organ to be examined by ultrasound because of its' anterior location and its anatomical structures and shape, which enhance the echograms produced by the ultrasound. We provide two types of ultrasound used in ophthalmology:

A-Scan Biometry is used to measure the axial length of the eye in order to make the intraocular lens (IOL) calculations for patients who will be undergoing cataract surgery. B-Scan Biometry is used for diagnosis in the posterior eye segment.
