Tasty Morsels of EM 032 – Lens Injury

I keep a little, ever-expanding note on my phone where I jot down little morsels of goodness that I pick up while listening to or reading one of the many excellent sites/podcasts in the useful resource section. They’re useful in a kind of “board review” way. I tend to skip the really basic stuff and try and focus on what I didn’t know.

I’ll try and transfer them here for your enlightenment.

From Rosen’s 7th on Eyes

Traumatic cataract

  • injury to capsule of lens
  • develops over weeks to months

Lens subluxation/dislocation

  • can go ant or post, if only a bit then subluxed rather than dislocated
  • patients complain of diplopia with subluxation and blurring with dislocation

And your best eye resource on the web does it even better
