Eye Trauma Lecture

This lecture covers common eye-trauma seen by ophthalmologists … such as corneal abrasion, lid lacerations, orbital wall fractures, and open-globe injury. This was recorded at the HOPS ophthalmic technician conference in Daytona Beach.

length: 24:30 minutes

Snapshots from this lecture:

The lecture title for the actual “trauma” section.

I discuss eyelid lacerations and how to repair them. I then discuss and show videos on the two methods for repairing canalicular lacerations … monocanalicular stents (monocult) and crawford tubes.

We show the difference between a corneal laceration and a corneal abrasion, and performance of the Seidel test to look for leaking aqueous.

Several gory videos are shown of bad trauma. This is a lid avulsion, requiring careful suturing and a crawford tube. I also cover lateral canthotomy and open-globe wounds.

Floor fractures are discussed, along with reading CT scans.

Entrapement is always of concern with an orbital fracture. Forced duction testing is demonstrated.


Very informative and fun video!

Thanks for commenting. I’ll email you Soraya, but I’m pretty busy with other eye projects and may not be too helpful if you have a lot of questions or looking to collaborate on a project.
