The eye is an organ that is formed from the age of 5 weeks when pregnancy occurs. The eye will continue to develop, until the 12th week the eye structure will be complete and upon entering the third trimester, the fetal pupillary reflex will start working. That's when the fetus is able to receive light stimulation from outside the uterus and not a few who can respond by making small movements inside the uterus.
In connection with your question, please note that ultrasound is a pregnancy check that is an option because of its safety, but the weakness of ultrasound is the description of ultrasound is operator dependent, that is, most of the results refer to the opinion of the examination operator / health worker / doctor who examined you. Therefore, you should ask first about the description of your fetal ultrasound to ensure and get further information with the doctor who handled your previous ultrasound examination.
Also, be aware that carrying a large portion of the eye content consists of liquid / gel, so that it will give an ultrasound picture with a more blackish structure than other body tissues. In addition, the position of the fetus can also determine whether or not an ultrasound picture. A fetus that is actively moving, and often changes its position will certainly affect the results of the ultrasound examination performed.
Therefore, don't worry too much. At the 28th week of pregnancy, periodic check up according to the specified schedule. If necessary, consult an obstetrician who has expertise in the fetomaternal field to get a second opinion / other opinions as well as more complete and relevant information. Always take care of your health and the fetus by consuming healthy and nutritious food, adequate rest, avoiding stress and fatigue or strenuous activities and Sufficient water needs. In addition, consume vitamins for pregnant women so that your daily nutrition and the fetus is fulfilled. So much information that I can convey, hopefully it helps
