Dear Forum,

I'm announcing a new web site of Grand Rounds Education. There are interesting clinical cases, weekly clinical tips, a photographic atlas and an article review. Use this web site also to reach my blog on Hospital - based optometry, the only one of its kind. Find out what a hospital -based practice is like. Click here, or jump to http://www.geocities.com/rchom/

Very interesting website. Could you post more pictures? How did you take those pictures?
Dear ericlemonster,

Of course, as time goes on. I do have over a thousand. Any particular things you would like to see in the way of photographs?

The anterior segment photos were either taken with just the macro setting of my Coolpix 995 or through the oculars of the Haag Streit or Topcon Slit Lamp. The posterior segment photos were either from an Canon 45NM Non Myd digital or from a hand held film fundus camera. I then scanned the slides into digital forms.

See the photo index for a case of mydriatics reducing vision from 20/25 to 20/50 each eye after the instillation of mydriatics. Click here. You may have to page down to see the photos.

This patient presented from the Emergency Department. The patient was found unconscious 2 days before. Upon awakening, he noticed this strabismus and left side hemiplegia. What do you think happened? What would you do?

1. What do you think you would do? Observe or refer?
2. What do you predict the best vision to be?
3. What do you predict the post-operative vision to be if you were to advise excision?
4. If surgical excision is refused by the patient, how would you manage?

See my web site (click here) for a continuing series of interesting photo images. Feel free to use them in your classes or to share with your optometric colleagues and classmates.

Something to look forward to in your clinical rotations or residency.

This 59 year old male with questionable compliance preented to the Emergency Department requesting pain medication. He had a 3 day history of pain, redness, blurry vision of the right eye. The patient is a historical POAG which is being managed with nightly Xalatan, each eye for the pst 3 yrs. He was characterized by the Emergency Department staff as having Iritis and under the auspices of the on call ophthalmologist was advised to add Ocufen QID and Prednisolone Acetate oph susp, 1% q 2 hrs till the next morning. The Emergency Room staff assured the ophthalmologist that there was no corneal staining.

Upon presentation to the clinic, I found a 5mm x 3 mm corneal ulcer with distinct corneal hypothesia, The surrounding cornea was edematous with significant WBC reaction practically involving the complete visible cornea. In the anterior chamber there was flare Grade 4, Cells #2, and IOPs of 28. The pupil reacted barely to direct and consensual reflexes. The fellow eye was normal with an IOP of 15. The eye was intensely red. Again, the patient requested a narcotic for pain management. Vision in this eye was 20/200 PHNI.

Dear Schroder79,

I'm not related. Please feel free to pass this site URL around to your classmates. In addition, I'm on the Allergan Speaker's Bureau, if you would like me to talk to your class or school.

Interestingly the CCT ws 850 in this photo. Patient presented with IOP 70 at the beginning visit. After 48 hours with a host of topical and orals, the IOP dropped to the mid 30's. Etiology secondary to neovascular glaucoma following a vitreous hemorrhage and in the presence of pervasive proliferative diabetic retinopathy and rubeosis irides
