Anatomy, Physiology and the Approach to the Patient with an Eye Complaint

Pediatric Ophthalmology and Optics

Pediatric ophthalmology is the study of little eyeballs! Or more technically, it is a sub-specialty of ophthalmology that is concerned with eye diseases, visual development, and vision care in children. This can be a challenging endeavour considering many children are unable to communicate their symptoms or answer medical questions. However, learning to examine and treat children in a way that makes them relaxed and cooperative can be very rewarding!

It is characterized by symptoms such as pain, redness, photophobia, and blurry vision. The term "ocular inflammatory diseases" (OID) more generally encompasses inflammatory diseases of ocular structures, including uveitis.

In this module, we'll take a deep dive into the world of the retina! We'll explore the structure and function of the retina and the vitreous while also exploring the visual pathway. The module will also tackle introductory retina examination, compare direct and indirect ophthalmoscopes, discuss tips on mastering fundus examination, and describe ancillary testing like optical coherence tomography (OCT) and fundus photography.
