Points & Pearls Excerpt

  • Iritis or anterior uveitis presents with consensual photophobia, pain, and blurry vision. On slit lamp examination, cells and flare will be noted in the anterior chamber.
  • Acute angle-closure glaucoma is a true emergency. It can be triggered by medications, dim lighting, or even emotional upset.
  • Treat acute angle-closure glaucoma with a combination of medications to reduce aqueous humor production (topical beta blockers, carbonic anhydrase inhibitor, or mannitol if refractory) and medications to increase aqueous humor outflow (topical phenylephrine, pilocarpine, and a topical steroid).
  • Floaters can be caused by retinal tears, vitreous detachment, and vitreous hemorrhage.
