Take Home Points

  • Always check the vital signs of the eye – visual acuities, field of vision, ocular pressure
  • Go in thinking whether you have to call Optho or not
  • Get the story – was there trauma or did it just appear?
  • Do the exam – Is it red or painful, are there changes in vision?
  • What is the location – Internal/external/periorbital
  • Watch out for vesicles of stain – this may be herpes
  • Don’t forget to use the ultrasound to evaluate the posterior chamber
