PCOS: Usually multiple peripherally arranged follicles signifies a "string of pearls" sign which is representative of a condition called PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome), which means that your ovaries aren't getting the right signals to release eggs at the right time. This can be a cause of infertility, but not always. Talk about it more with your doctor or arrange a consult for more information.

Sonogram report: It is important that radiologic studies be interpreted within the clinical context. The doctor ordering the test will need to help you interpret the sonogram as they know details about her medical history. It sounds like the report describes polycystic ovarian syndrome. If she has irregular periods then this could fit. Confirm with her doctor.

Sir my wife got multiply follicles in the peripheral average 8mm - 11mm wat does that means?

It depends partly on: Whether or not she's on medication to stimulate ovarian follicles. If she is, it means her ovaries are partially responding. If not, she might have Polycystic Ovary Syndrome, a condition that produces multiple follicles that don't maturing enough to release an egg. Often these follicles persist, creating multiple cysts. Mature follicles are 16-20 mm in size. I wish you both the best. Dr. Anne

Scan showed a numerous peripheral follicles with the right ovary much large. Largest measurin 1.8cm*1.8cm. Wit no Aeneas mass or pelvic fluid collection?

Difficult to: Evaluate without the images or clinical details, but this type of finding is sometimes seen with ovarian torsion. Are you in acute pain? What did they tell you about the results? This condition is usually emergent and requires prompt evaluation/treatment. If you are in pain, call your doctor.

Yes.: Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome is diagnosed in women whose ovaries have large cysts (it sounds like yours do), hirsuitism (extra growth of dark hair), and facial acne. Not all women with PCOS have abnormal periods.

What is peripheral iridectomy?

What is peripheral iridectomy?

Hole in iris: A peripheral iridectomy is a hole made in the outer portion of the iris, usually under the upper lid, which allows direct fluid passage from the back of the eye in conditions in which it might be obstructed. Most commonly it is for a condition termed acute glaucoma but there are other less common conditions for which it is done. It is usually performed using a laser in an outpatient setting.

How can I do peripheral vision?

How can I do peripheral vision?

Automatic: Peripheral vision which is the perception of visual input by the outer reaches of your retina is an automatic function as long as the eyes are open. Peripheral vision is especially sensitive to moving objects which we need to prevent hazards in our life space.

Why do we have peripheral vision?

Why do we have peripheral vision?

Early warning: Central vision is for fine detail - reading, face recognition, etc. Peripheral vision, of low acuity, is sensitive to motion and serves to provide early warning of threats from the sides and also provides orientation to the major features of the visual space. With no peripheral vision (called tunnel vision) you cannot drive, or easily walk around, etc.

Retina-optic nerve: Peripheral vision loss may be a retinal detachment, retinitis pigmentosa, rare drug toxicities, immune retinopathy, retinal infection, and glaucomatous optic neuropathy. In the brain migraine, and certain types of stroke can cause a loss of peripheral vision. Transient obscurations of vision may be low blood pressure. An eye examination with dilation should identify the cause.

What is distorted peripheral vision?

Migraine??: The big issue is whether it is a transient or permanent problem. Regardless, a full exam with visual field testing should help you sort out the possible cause. Migraine is most common transient type. In elderly patients you also have to assess for insufficient ocular blood flow (amarosis).

What causes loss of peripheral vision?

What causes loss of peripheral vision?

Many possibilities: Many things can cause loss of peripheral (side) vision: glaucoma is the most likely. Ocular pressure rise causes vascular and optic nerve damage. Another is a tumor or aneurysm near the pituitary gland, compressing the nerves from the eye as they first join and then re-divide on the way to the back of the brain. Oculo-vascular occlusions can do the same although most often this is only in one eye.
