Sample text

The field defect is usually a central field loss (central scotoma). It is extremely important to test the field of the other eye, as a field defect in the “good” eye may suggest a lesion of the optic chiasm or tract (for example, a pituitary adenoma). If the “inflammation” is anterior in the nerve, the optic disc will be swollen. Accompanying symptoms of general demyelinating disease such as pins and needles, weakness, and incontinence suggest multiple sclerosis. Management—Most patients recover spontaneously, but they may be left with diminished acuity and optic atrophy.

Management—It is important to make the diagnosis and exclude any underlying cause for the visual pathway damage. The following conditions should be excluded: ● ● ● ● ● ● ● ● Hypertension Diabetes mellitus Abnormal serum lipid profile Hyperviscosity syndromes Cardiac arrhythmias Cardiac embolic disease Carotid artery disease Giant cell arteritis. A Damage B Posterior damage C A Loss of vision in one eye B Homonymous hemianopia C "Macular sparing" Homonymous hemianopia Damage to visual pathways from vascular lesions The visual field defects sometimes improve with time, and patients should be taught to compensate for their field defect with appropriate head and eye movements.

Occasionally, a surgical procedure (such as epithelial debridement or corneal stromal puncture) may be carried out to enhance the adhesion between the epithelium and the underlying basement membrane. Foreign bodies It is important to identify and remove conjunctival and corneal foreign bodies. A patient may not recall a foreign body having entered the eye, so it is essential to be on the lookout for a foreign body if a patient has an uncomfortable red eye. It may be necessary to use local anaesthetic both to examine the eye and to remove the foreign body.
