Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.

Dark adapted vision: Scotopic vision is vision in low light conditions. It is in contrast to photopic vision which is vision in high light conditions. Scotopic vision is generally more rod dependent than cone dependent.

Pseudoexfoliation: Pseudoexfoliation is a condition where the eye makes an amyloid like protein that accumulates on the lens and other structures. It is nearly always in the elderly. It was originally thought to be in Scandinavian peoples, but recent studies have found it in populations around the world. It can cause glaucoma and zonular instability leading to cataract surgery complications and lens dislocation.

MRI does see orbit: A brain MRI will see the contents of your orbit, although the detail depends on the slice thickness. Some orbital tumors can be small and thick slices can pass above and below the tumor. Generally a tumor in the orbit will push the eye forward (proptosis) and this can be a clue. There are many causes for the pain you report that are not tumor. Best to see an ophthalmologist.
