An ultrasound of the eye is an ultrasound diagnosis that examines the inside of the eye. The length of the eye is also measured and the structure of the eye is analyzed.

The length of the eye is an important parameter in measurements for implantation of intraocular lens – biometrics. This value is stable (the eye does not grow in adults) and by measuring its length and curvature of the front of the eye, accurate and permanent calculations are made for intraocular lens implantation.


Eye ultrasound is the main diagnostic method when optical media are opaque. If you have a mature cataract, bleeding in the eye or blurred cornea, the structures inside the eye can be analyzed by ultrasound. In this way it can diagnose:

  • Tumors or neoplasms in the eye;
  • Foreign body in the eye;
  • Detachment of the retina or vitreous;
  • Injuries due to a loose lens in the eye.

The ophthalmologist may also recommend accurate measurement of the size of the tumor in the eye in order to determine therapeutic possibilities.


No special preparations are required before the procedure. It is done in a lying position with your eyes closed.

First, the eye is anesthetized with anesthetic drops. Your eye is closed, a gel is applied and the probe is placed on the eyelids. The ophthalmologist gently passes the ultrasound probe.

Ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves that “travel” through the eye. The reflections of sound waves form an image of the structure of the eye. The test takes about 15 minutes.

The pupils do not dilate during the procedure, but your vision may be blurred during the test. After completing the diagnostic tests, you should not scratch your eyes until the effects of the anesthetic drops have finished.
