A collaboration blog for Specialist Optometrists in the UK
I have been qualified as an optometrist since 1996 and have worked as a hospital optometrist at Manchester Royal Eye Hospital since 2003. I have been IP qualified since 2012. My specialist areas are glaucoma (my main work), acute referral, post-op cataract care and contact lens related.
How do you manage episcleritis? Was working in Eye Casualty this afternoon and had conflicting opinions!! Lubricants alone? Steroids and lubricants? Just steroids? If steroids type and dosing regime? Thanks in advance.
