Dates: 30/09/2011 to 28/10/2011
Pass Mark: 60%
This article examines retinal degenerations and congenital anomalies that the optometrist may encounter in the periphery of an asymptomatic patient. The key identifying features are described and for each condition the following questions are asked: Is it a risk factor for retinal detachment (RD)? Is prophylactic treatment required? Does it warrant referral? If so, should it be urgent or routine? If referral is not warranted, is more frequent monitoring by the optometrist required? What advice should be given to the patient?
