These are general guides, however, each case should be taken on its own merit and management will depend upon the precise clinical scenario. If in doubt contact the ophthalmology department for advice.
Sometimes you will receive reports from optometrists asking you to take over care or informing you about their findings. Optometrists are highly trained professionals and tend to be excellent at diagnosing and managing a wide variety of ophthalmic conditions. Follow their guidance but if in doubt hopefully the information below will be of some assistance. Again, it must be emphasised that this is general guidance and each case must be taken on its merits. If in doubt contact your ophthalmologist for advice.
If a condition you want to know about is not here let us know and we will add a section on it shortly.
