Focal Points 2019 Module: Pain in the “Normal” Eye

Focal Points 2019 Module: Pain in the “Normal” Eye

There are several conditions that cause eye pain but might not elicit abnormal findings in a standard ocular workup. When a patient presents with eye pain, it is important to obtain a thorough history and consider whether subtle findings could be clues to the etiology—or whether the source of the pain is extraocular.

This Focal Points module reviews recent research findings regarding ocular pain in the normal-appearing eye and applies these results to patient care.

Complete this module to:

  • Recognize subtle abnormalities on examination and some common causes of ocular pain
  • Discuss the newer pain pathways and how they relate to the other pathways
  • Recognize the diagnosis and treatment of giant cell arteritis, corneal neuropathy, supraorbital and occipital neuralgia, and migraine

Authors: Jody Abrams, MD; Robert Zusman, MS-IV
