Ocular emergencies

October 05, 2021 ocular, panel discussion
Ocular emergencies are often a reason for concern for optometrists. Will you spot them on time, and if you do find something that needs urgent care, how do you go about it? When do you really press the ’emergency button’ and when can you calm down and take more time? Our panel members are from different backgrounds, and will give their views on how to provide better and more adequate patient care in these cases:

Marko Lukic, Locum Consultant Ophthalmologist at Moorfields Eye Hospital, London, UK
Danson V. Muttuvelu, Senior Consultant Ophthalmic Surgeon, Denmark
Niels Crama, Ophthalmologist, Vitreoretinal Surgeon at Radboudumc, the Netherlands
Svein Tindlund, Optometrist, Head of Clinical Performance at Specsavers
One of the most frequent ocular emergencies optometrists meet in their daily practice is red eyes. You can find an expert conversation about how to identify and treat red eyes with dr Alexander Thrane on Viewpoint.
