Learn the components of the complete ophthalmic history and approaches to asking appropriate questions to gain accurate diagnosis

Course Description

The first hour of this course will describe the components of the complete ophthalmic history. Then a variety of ophthalmologic symptoms will be presented, differential diagnoses discussed, and approaches to asking appropriate questions to gain accurate diagnosis will be demonstrated. These principles will then be applied to triage— by listening to a patient’s complaints, eliciting signs and symptoms, deciding on the need for immediate attention, and scheduling a visit within a defined time frame. The course will conclude with case presentations for audience participation.

Course Objectives

Upon completion of this course, participants should be able to:

  1. Describe the components of a complete ophthalmic history.
  2. Identify the differential diagnosis of symptoms.
  3. Ask the proper questions in telephone triage to determine urgency.
