Common eye emergencies may present as an acute red eye, sudden visual loss or acute ocular trauma. Most eye emergencies will require referral to an ophthalmologist after initial basic examination and primary management. A relevant history of onset and symptoms of the current problem must be obtained and, in the case of trauma, the exact mode and time of injury. Any relevant medical, family or previous ocular history must also be elicited.
