STATION 3: HUMPHREY FIELD
The Humphrey had the fields of both the eyes and there was a bitemporal
superior quadrantinopia. (At least thatís what I thought)
Question was asked about the possible location of the lesion.
STATION 4: FFA
The FFA had a full set of pictures, about 32 I think, the first one
was a colored photo and the rest were flourescein.
No diagnosis was asked, one eye was normal the other had a central
pathology, i.e. leakage of dye in the macular area.
It was a case of CSR.
STATION 5: CT SCAN
CT scan showed both the orbits with thickening of all the extra ocular
muscles, no diagnosis was asked but it was a case of thyroid ophthalmopathy
STATION 6: EOG
Question was asked about what this investigation is and to comment
on the 2 highlighted values with yellow, which were Arden index and LP.
STATION 7: TONOMETER HEAD
Tonometer head was to be identified and asked to draw its working principle.
STATION 8: VISUAL ACUITY IN CHILDREN
5 tests were written and we were asked to tell which test applies to
which age group in children.
The tests were:
1. Preferential looking
2. Kay single picture test
3. Sheridan Gardiner test
4. Sonksen Silver test
5. Log MAR chart
All this is given in strabismus chapter pg 528 JJ Kanski.
I think the hospital was quite short of patients since many
of the subjects chosen for refraction were hospital staff.
I had a 23 yr old female (hospital staff) with vision of
OD: 6/60, 6/18 PH. OS: 6/60, 6/24 PH.
Her final prescription was OD: -5.5 DS/ -2.25 DC axis 180. 6/4
OS: -5.75 DS/ -1.75 Dc axis 180 6/4
