Diagnostic Quiz

Can you discern the causes of these unusual clinical presentations? By Andrew S. Gurwood, OD

Seeing Both Sides of It

Is this patient’s ocular asymmetry a cause for concern? If so, what is the appropriate course of action?

Skin in the Game

It’s wise to evaluate areas beyond the eyes and ocular adnexa, as they may reveal definitive clues to diagnosis.

In the Thick of It

Retinal exam points toward a likely culprit for this patient’s severely reduced visual acuity.

Going Back and Forth

Your exam elicits an abduction nystagmus and some gaze positions produce diplopia. What’s your next move?

Disc Jockey

This patient’s optic nerve head appearance was concerning. What could create this presentation, and what does it represent?

In Deep Trouble

Problems that arise beneath the RPE are often worrisome. Would you recommend immediate attention in this case?

Hiding in Plain Sight

When a patient has no visual problems but you notice an anomaly, what should you do?

Blink and You’ll Miss It

When there’s little to no clinical evidence to evaluate, we must rely on careful questioning to uncover the cause.

That Sinking Feeling

A patient’s vision has been blurry ever since a recent fall. You examine her and find this. What’s going on?
