The eye exam in the urgent care setting has three key components: the vital signs of the eye, the external exam, and the fundoscopic exam.  The “vital signs” of the eye exam are easy to obtain but often missed – these include visual acuity, peripheral field testing, and light perception. Next, the external eye exam covers inspection of the periorbital region, eyelids, sclera, cornea, iris, and pupil.  Finally, the fundoscopic exam focuses on inspection of the retina, macula, optic disc & nerve, which can reveal not only ocular pathologies but also secondary findings of other processes such as diabetes, hypertension, and increased intracranial pressure.
