Example text

The patient usually presents with unilateral swollen eyelids that may or may not be red. Features to look for include: ● the patient is systemically unwell and febrile ● there is tenderness over the sinuses ● there is proptosis, chemosis, reduced vision, and restriction of eye movements. The possibility of orbital cellulitis should always be kept in mind, especially in children, and patients should be referred immediately without any delay. Orbital inflammatory disease—Non-specific orbital inflammatory disease can occur as an isolated finding or in association with a number of systemic vasculitides, including Wegener’s granulomatosis.

There is usually pain that worsens on movement of the eye. There may have been previous attacks. Examination—The visual acuity may range from 6/6 to perception of light. Despite a “normal” visual acuity, the patient usually has an afferent pupillary defect and may notice that the colour red looks faded when viewed with the affected eye (red desaturation). The field defect is usually a central field loss (central scotoma). It is extremely important to test the field of the other eye, as a field defect in the “good” eye may suggest a lesion of the optic chiasm or tract (for example, a pituitary adenoma).

A patient with thick glasses should wear them for the pinhole test. Once other causes of visual loss have been excluded, the patient can be sent to an optometrist for refraction and correction of refractive error (for example, glasses). Glaucoma Macular degeneration Refractive error Drugs Corneal disease Various disorders can cause gradual loss of the corneal endothelial cells and increasing oedema of the cornea (for example, Fuch’s endothelial dystrophy). This leads to a gradual decrease in visual acuity that does not improve substantially with a pinhole.
