An ultraound, also known as a sonogram, is a painless and relatively inexpensive imaging test that utilizes sound waves instead of ionizing radiation. There are no side effects. Ultrasound can give us two-dimensional, and in some applications three-dimensional, images of structures and organs in virtually any part of the body. In addition to diagnostic uses, such as evaluating abnormalities in the abdomen, pelvis, and breast, ultrasounds are commonly used to guide needle and catheter placement in a variety of surgical ...Read more
Normal field vision test. Dilated optic discs small w/slight asymmetry. Suspicious oct scan. Eye pressure 27. Family history. Suspect for glaucoma?
Monocular Diplopia, halos, and glare. Ghosting images, blurry far away. 3 eye doctors said eyes healthy, MRI said brain healthy. What could it be?
Monocular Diplopia: Monocular Diplopia is almost always due to something in that eye: cataract (PSC), irregular astigmatism (send us copy of your Pentacam), irregular nerve (send us copy of your nerve photos and HRT and HVF), and/or tear film abnormality (send us copy of your Lipiscan). Consult with us to help solve this issue. ...Read more
Yes: Intraocular pressure should always be measured prior to dilation as it typically increases a little after dilation, especially when monitoring for glaucoma. There are a few conditions where it may be checked after and eye doctors will typically recheck pressures after dilation to ensure accuracy of their technician, but as a rule, this should be documented prior to dilation. ...Read more
Blurry vision, constant eye floaters, flashes of light, double vision. MRI normal & saw 2 eye doctors who found nothing. What can it be?!
Talk to your doctor : You may want to see a neuro -ophthalmologist. Your symptoms are very concerning. It's possible to have normal exam and negative MRI and still have something wrong.

Optic Nerve RNFL OCT shows thinning temporal- both eyes, 20/20 both eyes, IOP 17 both eyes. Retinal exam normal. Is this significant
Response: Since all you provide are some brief findings regarding your retinas, I must conclude these tests were obtained due to some neurological symptoms. These results could be part of Multiple Sclerosis, if other signs and symptoms support the diagnosis. The thinning of the RNFL is notable, and should be followed up. Would a Concierge visit allow more in depth understanding? ...Read more
Blurred vision in one eye, headaches, muscle twitches, dark/yellow circles around eyes. Cat scan of brain & blood work normal. Sound serious?
See an eye doc: Even though cat scan normal, you should still be seen by an ophthalmologist given your symptoms especially if they are progressive. It could be as simple as needing an updated pair of glasses if this is just eye strain(which can cause blurred vision, headaches, and stress related twitching around eyes), but it needs to be ruled out because it could be more serious. ...Read more

May have seen proble: Did this eye doctor see your child and noted something? Or is this a generic statement that all preemies need an eye examination? Some preemies are exposed to oxygen which can affect the retinal vessels and other preemies may have other eye problems. This may just be a friendly suggestion and is a reasonable idea but probably not an alarming one. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Your suspicion?: If you are having suspicion of a tumor behind your eye, you are probably having symptoms, such as double vision, decreased vision, pain, prominent or bulging eyeball, tremendous redness of eye, and perhaps other neurological symptoms. My advice is to seek an exam by an eye md for evaluation of your symptoms to see if other testing is warranted. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No pain: There is a slight stinging from the numbing drop applied before the test. The test touches the center of the cornea with an ultrasonic, tiny probe which you will not feel. One touch is all and the data is recorded. Not a test to be worried about in the least. ...Read more
Lasik results. Pre-op myopia. Left eye now +0.5, with -0.5 astig. Right eye -0.125 with slight astig. Right eye strains close up/distance. What to do?

They Do not hurt: Gonioscopy, ophthalmoscopy and tonometry are all part of a complete eye examination and generally do not hurt. Topical anesthetic drops are instilled in the eye at the beginning of the examination. While the bright light of ophthalmoscopy may be briefly uncomfortable, it is generally not painful. ...Read more
Yes if present : The dilated eye exam is exactly how we inspect the retina, optic nerve , blood vessels, and other parts for diseases. So if a person has diabetes and it is affecting their retina, we will find it and if necessary treat the complications. As it turns out, not having retinopathy (a good thing) doesn't mean that you don't have diabetes. Your primary doctor determines that. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Yes they should!: Dilation of the eyes is part of a complete eye examination. The examiner cannot see the entire retina without dilating the eyes and it makes looking at certain parts of the such as the macula and optic nerve much easier after dilating. If you are seeing the doctor for a specific problem not involving the retina, you will not necessarily need dilation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

What to do if my eye ultrasound show the swellingness or inflammation of optic nerve if not then which test?
Papilledema: The best way to determine if your optic nerve is swollen is for an ophthalmologist to look. Other tests that may be helpful include ultrasound, mri, oct, and visual field testing. It can sometimes be very difficult to distinguish true papilledema from other types of optic nerve swelling. A consultation with a neuro-ophthalmologist can be helpful in this regard. ...Read more
Had an eye ultrasound (fine) and an eye exam (fine) due to a nerf gun. But the dr said i still should be worried for 3mths for a detached retina, why?
2 types: A mode ultrasound is used to measure the eye, typically used to estimate the best synthetic lens to implant in a cataract operation. It is also used to help diagnose eye disease (e.g. Length of the eye, characteristics and size of eye tumors). B-mode ultrasound is used to obtain qualitative pictures of the eye and around the eye called the orbit- used to look into the eye when the view is bad. ...Read more

No change in vision is expected. Normally performed for glaucoma, refractive, corneal d/o ...Read more

Cold packs: Usually not a big problem. Can be irritating to eye area, but with flushing and cold, moist compresses it will quiet down. Use of eye drops like for contact lenses is fine to use. If there is much irritation or if it lasts more than a couple of days, you should go to urgent care for examination or to eye doctor for more specific care. ...Read more
I've got crigler najjar syndrome. Is there anyway to reduce the yellowness in eyes? I've gone through ultrasound and all related tests. Nothing wrong.
Bull's eye by US: Ultrasound images can be very helpful to clinicians: they are pretty easy to obtain, not too expensive, very safe for patients and often lead to diagnosis. When the bowel telescopes on itself, aka intussuseption, it causes pain and obstruction and quickly becomes an emergency. With the walls of the bowel telescoped or folded onto themselves it looks like a target or bull's eye on ultrasound. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
