When I was shadowing Dr. Chhabra, we met a patient that suffered from ocular trauma due to an altercation. Dr. Chhabra explained that one concern for this patient would be that they are suffering from a build-up of ocular blood. This condition left untreated could eventually lead to very serious consequences such as blindness. In order to check whether or not the patient was suffering from this condition, they used a Tonometer TonoPen which would check the intraocular pressure. If the pressure reading of the eye that suffered from the trauma was much higher than the pressure reading of the other normal eye, this would indicate an ocular issue. In this case, a bedside procedure called a lateral canthotomy would be performed in order to relieve ocular pressure. Luckily, this was not the case for the patient.
