It is with this that one flushes an eye w/a chemical burn:
Sterile solution (or if not available, water).
This disorder of the eye is very contagious. Pt's should be concerned about spreading this infection to their family:
Place an ER Pt w/a penetrating object in the eye in this position:
Sitting & w/support of their head.
This is the criteria for 'Legal Blindness':
20/200. Or: Less w/corrected vision (glasses, contacts). Or: With less than 20 degrees of the visual field in the better eye.
This test checks peripheral vision by facing the Pt & bringing in an object from the side:
The normal range of intraoccular pressure (assessed in Glaucoma Pts w/a Tonomotry test) is this:
10 - 22 mm Hg
This eye test uses a calibrated instrument to measure intraocular fluid pressure by flattening/indenting the corneal apex:
A Tonometry test
This is the most specific assoc. prob. for Pts scheduled for cataract surgery & is r/t lens extraction & replacement:
"Sensory perceptual alteration"
Gradual, painless blurring of vision is an early S/S (manifestation) in this eye disorder:
Which type of prescribed eye drop med do Pts getting cataract surgery get? Miotic or Mydriatic?
Which type of prescribed eye drop med that Pts getting cataract surgery do NOT get? Miotic or Mydriatic?
Body Position. Post-Op. A Post-Op cataract surgery Pt should be placed how to prevent edema in the surgical site?
Either: 1) Semi-Fowler's on their back. 2) On the non-op side.
A Post Op Cataract Pt c/o nausea & severe eye pn. What do you do?
Report the Pt's complaints as this is an indicator of increased IOP.
Post Op cataract Pts must wear this when they sleep (so they don't unintentionally rub their eye if it itches):
A hard metal/plastic shield/cup over one eye.
