You’re looking at an interactive case study from Prognosis: Your Diagnosis (one of four distinct learning formats available in Clinical Odyssey). Try it out, and have fun improving your clinical skills.
A 10-year-old boy presents with sudden, severe left eye pain, after that eye was struck by a ricocheting pellet while shooting a BB gun with a friend. He was not wearing protective or prescription glasses at that time.
There are no complaints related to the right eye, and he has no history of ocular trauma, surgery, glasses, or contact lens use. His medical history is unremarkable and he is currently not on any medications.
