Vision Eye Institute specialist Dr Christolyn Raj teamed up with optometrist Dr Graham Lakkis to provide their unique perspectives in diagnosing and treating anterior eye disease at a Cornea and Contact Lens Society of Australia event recently.
Using a series of case-based presentations, they compared and contrasted their differential diagnostic process and treatment plans for a number of conditions that affect the front of the eye in both adults and children. These included epidemic keratoconjunctivitis, ocular trauma, recurrent corneal erosion and vernal conjunctivitis.
A key focus of the night was that primary or secondary presentation, diagnostic equipment, therapeutic prescribing and surgical options will affect the way different practitioners assess and successfully treat the same ocular disease.
