Ultrasound elastography has become available in the everyday practice, allowing direct measurement of tissue
elasticity with important and expanding clinical applications. Several studies that have evaluated pathological and nonpathological tissues have demonstrated that ultrasound elastography can actually improve diagnostic accuracy of
underlying disease process by detecting differences in their elasticity. Ocular and periocular tissues can also be
characterized for their elastic properties. In this context, comprehensive review of literature on ultrasound elastography as
well as its current applications in Ophthalmology is presented.
