Primary Eye Care Clinics are not a readily available service on every University campus; therefore General Medical Practitioners must have the skills and knowledge to treat common ocular dysfunctions. This general session will provide participants with knowledge, skills, and discuss tools necessary to provide primary eye care services. Participants will be able to identify, explain, and start treatment as well as when to refer for multiple types of red eyes. Participants will be able to identify ocular side effects of commonly prescribed drugs and be able to explain how, why, and reversibility or irreversibility to patients. Participants will be able to differentiate, explain, and refer for common systemic issues such as Diabetes, Hypertension as well as Headaches and Pseudo tumor.
