    Comprehensive Ophthalmology, Oculoplastics/Orbit
    CME 0.5 General AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™

    Whether in academic or private practice, ophthalmologists are often asked to see and manage patients with orbital trauma. These consults can be challenging: how soon do patients need to be seen, which require urgent care, and when should they be referred to oculoplastic and orbital surgery? In this episode, Drs. Natalie Homer and Andrea Tooley break down their approaches to orbital fractures, eyelid and canalicular lacerations, and intraocular foreign bodies.
