Experienced Glaucoma specialist Laura Crawley gives an insight into acute Glaucoma and emergency high eye pressures.
The presentation covers the following points:
- To identify acutely raised IOP in the GP surgery reliably with focused questions and basic examination with a pen torch
- To understand the emergency referral pathway and when is the essential time for treatment
- To identify the role of lens surgery in managing this condition from the medium to long-term
- To recognise other causes of acutely raised IOP such as uveitis, trauma and vascular occlusions and how the treatment paradigm is different.
