About this course
What are the red flags of red eyes? Learn about the diagnostics and management of red eye emergencies.
Red eye is one of the most common ocular presentations and a wide spectrum of diseases can cause red eye. Most causes of red eye are relatively benign, however, some potentially vision-threatening or life-threatening conditions can present in similar ways as an emergency. Getting to the bottom of the problem can often be tricky. In the first part of this webinar, you will learn about underlying principles relevant to ocular pathology and develop a methodical approach to the workup of these cases which will enable you to define and refine the problem that is occurring. The second case-based part of the course focuses on putting this knowledge into practice and learning about management of red eye emergencies to enhance visual outcome.
