Ophthalmology Masterclass for General Practitioners
Learn simple skills for differentiating what can be easily treated (even if it looks nasty) and what needs urgent referral (even if it looks OK)
It's late afternoon and a young woman comes to see you with a red eye.
Is it conjunctivitis or sight threatening keratitis?
Endophthalmitis or acute glaucoma?
Should she get a script for a topical antibiotic and go home or could she be blind in 24 hours?
An older man comes in with a "smudge" on his eye.
Is it a pterygium or ocular surface squamous neoplasia?
A cystic naevus, pigmented SCC, melanosis or melanoma?
If it has been a few years since you last updated your eye skills, now is a perfect time for a refresher.
