Assessing Common Eye Conditions

Assessing Common Eye Conditions


General practice eye consultations account for about 2.2 out of every 100 consultations. They range in nature from minor problems to vision-threatening emergencies. Eye problems are the fifth most common reason for medical specialist referral in Australia, making up 7.3% of such referrals.

Identification and appropriate management of acute eye injuries and infection and of acute and progressive visual loss are essential skills for general practitioners. This educational activity aims to provide practical information for GPs on the assessment and diagnosis of chronic eye conditions, and appropriate times to refer.


  1. Describe the main differential diagnoses for red eye with no pain or vision loss
  2. Identify the different types of conjunctivitis and recommended management
  3. Discuss a systematic approach to identification of ophthalmic conditions requiring immediate referral.
