CLICK ON THE NAME OF THE DOCUMENT TO DOWNLOAD IT.

Acute ophthalmic conditions present diagnostic and management challenges. To assist in assessing patients with acute presentations, including retinal ischemia, OMIC Committee member Dr. Gaurav Shah and retina fellow Dr. Alex Boutini of Retina Consultants, Ltd (St. Louis, MO) developed an algorithm called Acute Ophthalmic Presentations. We thank them for allowing us to share this decision tree.

Consider sending this decision tree to Emergency Department physicians at hospitals where you take call.
