You did it again...listened to this segment, 4 days later had a patient with eye issue, that I quickly went through your initial questions, determined not a candidate for UC, and got her set up with ophthalmology. All within 15-20 minutes of first arrival.
This information it great, keep it coming...

For glaucoma: how do you measure IOP in UC setting? We don't have that technology in the that a common thing for UC practices to have?

Dr. J/Maui

Mike W., MD -

The 2 common ways are w a tonopen (an electronic device which can be a bit complicated to use) or the tonometer (a bit old fashioned but super easy to use). Not very common to have these devices in the UC...

Caroline K., PA-C -

If someone comes into the urgent care with traumatic iritis, do you send them to the ED or is there anything you can do for them in the UC?

Mike W., MD -

I would phone consult w ophtho and they would likely see in the office same day. Good question!
