"Key Takeaways:
  • Always have a broad differential on evaluation of the red eye (HCG FUNKS). A detailed history may help you diagnose the pathology and the cause behind it, which can save time and effort.
  • Consider autoimmune disease in patients with systemic complaints or unclear etiology when diagnosing eye pathology.
  • The importance of a complete eye exam cannot be understated. This includes visual acuity, pupil exam, intraocular pressure, fundoscopy, and slit lamp exam with fluorescein if not contraindicated.
  • Delayed treatment/consultation with ophthalmology can lead to serious morbidity.
  • Use of the slit lamp is vital to diagnosing many emergent causes of red eye and is expected of us from our ophthalmology colleagues."
