The eye can be further examined with ultrasound, employing the same principles used in fetal ultrasound, although on a smaller scale. The sound delivered is reflected at different tissue interfaces and the reflected beam is received by the transducer. The reflected sound waves are analyzed to give further information about ocular structures. The transducer itself may be placed directly on the eye, after topical anesthesia, or on the eyelid, depending on the desired procedure.
