Description

Registering

Ever wonder how you're going to manage to fit in time to take a thorough history and examination in your OSCEs?

Join our clinically focused teaching on red eye and vision loss to help prepare for finals where we discuss history-taking, physical examinations, investigations, and how to differentiate between different causes of red eye and vision loss with practice case scenarios.

This teaching is not only aimed at Manchester medical students, anyone is welcome to join.

Certificates and slides are given once the feedback form is completed.

Conditions we will cover:

- Red eye (e.g. blepharitis, keratitis, conjunctivitis, scleritis, episcleritis, uveitis)

- Acute vision loss (e.g. stroke or transient ischaemic attack, angle-closure glaucoma, giant cell arteritis, retinal vessel occlusion, retinal detachment, posterior vitreous detachment, and vitreous haemorrhage)

- Gradual vision loss (e.g. open-angle glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration, cataracts, diabetic retinopathy, and hypertensive retinopathy)

Learning objectives:

1. How to take a concise ophthalmology history and know when to ask what question

2. Physical examinations to consider and their relevant signs

3. Investigations for ophthalmic disorders and when to consider them

4. Causes of ophthalmic disorders and how do differentiate between them

5. Practice OSCE scenarios to apply knowledge of ophthalmology

Summary

This session focuses on how to deal with patients presenting with red eye and vision loss, including asking the right questions in history-taking, performing relevant physical examinations, when to order what test, and how to differentiate between causes of red eye and vision loss. Conditions we will cover include: - Red eye (e.g. blepharitis, keratitis, conjunctivitis, scleritis, episcleritis, uveitis) - Acute vision loss (e.g. stroke or transient ischaemic attack, angle-closure glaucoma, giant cell arteritis, retinal vessel occlusion, retinal detachment, posterior vitreous detachment, and vitreous haemorrhage) - Gradual vision loss (e.g. open-angle glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration, cataracts, diabetic retinopathy, and hypertensive retinopathy)
