Ophthalmic emergencies are an important part of general practice for a number of reasons: Clients tend to perceive ocular changes as urgent because of the importance humans place on perfect vision; ocular disease can be extremely painful and readily noted by owners; and there is a narrow “window” of opportunity to save sight in some diseases. We will discuss the 3 questions clients can be asked to decide if it is a true emergency and then we will cover the diagnosis and management of a series of common ophthalmic emergencies in dogs and cats such as proptosis, eyelid lacerations, glaucoma, and deep ulcers.
