Preparation, diagnosis

Before your appointment with the ophthalmologist, it is recommended to have a laboratory blood test (CBC, or complete blood count) and if there is eye discharge, a bacterial test. After the doctor reviews your medical history, he or she will examine your eyes and prescribe the necessary diagnostic tests and procedures. The specific tests vary depending on the patient’s condition and diagnosis. The diagnostic procedures may include:

Ophthalmologist / ophthalmic surgeon
  • ultrasound exam of the skull and cervical area;
  • ophthalmoscopy (examination of the retina and optic nerve);
  • gonioscopy (examination of the anterior chamber of the eye);
  • biological microscopy;
  • diaphanoscopy (if there is an internal ocular hematoma or oncology is suspected);
  • refractometry;
  • measurement of intraocular pressure;
  • Echoophthalmography.

To identify the causes of the disease or disorder, additional procedures and analyses may be ordered such as more blood tests (for sugar, hormones, tumor markers), and CT and MRI scans. Based on the results of these tests and exams, an accurate diagnosis is made and the optimal course of therapy is prescribed.

Then he or she will examine your eyes and perform a vision test. If necessary, additional diagnostic exams will be prescribed. After the doctor has fully diagnosed the disorder, a decision will be made about whether surgery is required, the type of operation and preoperative steps, and the various stages of treatment including postoperative recovery.
