Eye Emergency Manual
By Agency for Clinical Innovation
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
This app is designed for use by all medical, nursing and allied health clinicians in Emergency Departments across New South Wales.
It provides a quick and simple guide to recognising important signs and symptoms, and management of common eye emergencies.
The app will also be of assistance in triaging patients to appropriate care within the health system.
The content within this app was developed by ophthalmic and emergency clinicians of the NSW Agency for Clinical Innovation (ACI).
These guidelines have not undergone a formal process of evidence based clinical practice guideline development however they are the result of consensus opinion determined by the expert clinician working group. They are not a definitive statement on the correct procedures rather they constitute a general guide to be followed subject to the clinician’s judgment in each case. The consensus opinion provided is based on the best information available at the time of writing.
To help with ease of use, this manual has a high graphic content, and is subdivided into anatomy, basic ophthalmic workup (history, examination, diagnostic techniques and treatment), and management of common eye presentations.
Each of the presenting conditions is subdivided into the following sections:
• Immediate action (if any)
• Follow-up - When to refer?
What's New in Version 2.0
Version 2.0 provides a major update that introduces a number of improvements. A glossary has been added to the app covering all the common terms found within the pages. Pages now include links to glossary terms so definitions can be viewed in context. The main navigation has been redesigned to enable clear and easy access to the various sections. Clinicians can now star frequently used pages for quick and easy access.
