Are coloured doppler images of heart coloured? I mean do they use colours liked red,orange to highlight important findings. Or are they black n white

Are coloured doppler images of heart coloured? I mean do they use colours liked red,orange to  highlight important findings. Or are they black n white

They are colored: The colors are indicative of the velocity of the blood flow. You may recall the Doppler effect from yr physics classes where they explained the change in pitch of the sound of a train whistle as it passed you. It is used extensively in astronomy (the "red shift"). Anytime that something is moving and vibrating simultaneously the observer will detect a variable pitch. The machine presents that as a ...Read more

Do the shape of floaters (cobwebs, strands, dots etc.) and their texture (glass-like, shadow etc.) tell anything about a more serious retinal issue?

Do the shape of floaters (cobwebs, strands, dots etc.) and their texture (glass-like, shadow etc.) tell anything about a more serious retinal issue?

Usually not: Floaters can take many forms from linear to large blobs to minute dots. All of these forms can be seen in the natural aging of the eye. I always advise that new, increased or sudden floaters prompt a retinal exam since there is no way of telling. Most floaters are benign. Serious retinal issues cannot be diagnosed by floater type! ...Read more

Most likely migraine: Visual events described as wavy, zigzag, saw toothed, jagged, scintillating, often are a result of a migrainal event that has stimulated the visual path in the brain. They may or may not be associated with headache, nausea, vomiting or other associated symptoms. To be sure see your eye md for an exam to make sure it isn't a retinal issue. ...Read more

If a color blind person is red-green color blind, can they still see most shades of those colors normally?

If a color blind person is red-green color blind, can they still see most shades of those colors normally?

Altered perception: They will see shades of color in all colored objects but will but see the full range, so colors that might appear bright to you will seem attenuated to the color deficient and some colors will seem what you might term brownish. The mixture seen depends upon the depth of the color blindness in each individual. Because of this most color deficient persons adopt rather bland wardrobes. ...Read more

Macular issue: The variations in the colors of the letters localizes the problem area to the central retina, the macula lutea, aka the fovea centralis.

My daughter's eye prescription is od -3.00 sphere +2.00 cylinder 110 aaxis and os -6.00 sphere +2.50 cylinder 30 axis what does this mean?

My daughter's eye prescription is od -3.00 sphere +2.00 cylinder 110 aaxis and os -6.00 sphere +2.50 cylinder 30 axis what does this mean?

OD is right eye,: OS is left eye. The first #s. sphere, are negative, meaning she is nearsighted. The second #s (cylinder) is the amount of astigmatism that is present. Since astigmatism means the eye is focusing light at an angle, astigmatism comes with a rotation axis. The cylinder is rotated to this axis so that the light can be focused straight on. ...Read more
