In case of epibulbar pathology, what is the importance of high resolution ultrasound evaluation?

( ) Normal sclera is uniformly highly reflective and has distinct margins to the episclera and underlying uveal tissue. ( ) Episcleritis typically does not show low reflective thickening of the episclera with normal underlying sclera. ( ) Scleritis can be diffuse and nodular. ( ) In nodular scleritis, the scleral thickening and hyporeflectivity is not focal with distinct borders.
