60 year old man sitting at the slit lamp. Instruction: Take a look
Slit lamp screws were locked. Unlocked the instrument and began with
slit lamp examination. Asked to skip preliminaries.Patient was aphakic
but no surgical scar in both eyes.I suspected spontaneous dislocation of
lens both eyes. There was no evidence of pseudo exfoliation. Asked what
would I like to do next. I wanted to examine with direct ophthalmoscope.I
remarked that patient had no features suggestive of Marfan's, Homocystinuria
or Weil Marchesani's'. Patient had bilateral dislocated lens in vitreous.Regarding
management I said since the eye was quite and lens capsule appeared intact
I would adopt a conservative management. Contact lenses or aphakic spectacles
with follow up to watch development of glaucoma or iridocyclitis.The examiners
50 year old lady to do direct ophthalmoscopy
Patient had myopic disc and also cupping. I asked for tension and was
told 17.3mmHg. I said that I wanted to rule out any congenital anomaly
of optic nerve or glaucoma. I was asked which was more likely in this case.
I preferred Normal tension glaucoma. I wanted to do her fields and was
given automated perimetry chart wich showed typical glaucomatous field
defects. The discussion was on management.
To do Indirect ophthalmoscopy on a 40 year old male
The patient had Sectoral RP involving supero nasal quadrant BE. I was
asked about ERG.
10 year old child to do cover test
The child had had hypotropia of RE.
On doing ocular motility patient was found to have defective elevation
in adduction.A diagnosis of Rt.Brown's was made.
Medicine and Neurology
5 year old child -to examine
The child was irritable and cried as I observed him. He had right lagophthalmos.
Rt.LMN facial palsy.I offered the child a toffee and the effect was dramatic.
He smiled and was at once became co- operative. Patient also had left hemiplegia.
I was asked to demonstrate knee jerk. It was a UMN lesion and hence I put
the lesion above Pons. Regarding etiology I thought it could be post viral
or post tuberculous meningitis. The child did have Tb meningitis!
To examine ocular motility in an adult male
Patient had ptosis, crutch glasses and severe limitation of ocular
movements in all direction. I offered dd of CPEO, Oculo pharygeal dystrophy
and Myasthenia gravis. I wanted to examine him for thymectomy scar and
he did have one! Discussion was on investigations and treatment of MG.
Fields of an adult male
Bitemporal hemianopia . I was asked how to pick up early bitemporal
hemianopia. I mentioned color desaturation for red.Causes of bitemporal
hemianopia was discussed. Patient had no signs of acromegaly.
Young obese boy- to examine
Patient had obesity and polydactyly.7 digits in all 4 limbs. He had
a vacant stare and nystagmus. I wanted to examine his fundus which showed
RP sine pigmento. I was asked to comment on his ERG which was grossly

Case 1 :
SLE of 25 year old man. Patient wore hard contact lens RE with a central
corneal opacity. LE showed advanced keratoconus. Questions were on management.

degeneration and small round holes.Management -observe.

8 yr old male with rt.abduction defect and typical features of Rt.
Duane's retraction syndrome.Patient had face turn to avoid diplopia.
25 yr old for indirect ophthalmoscopy. Patient had vitreous degeneration
with typical RP. Questions were on hereditary pattern and ocular associations.
60 yr old male for ocular motility. Patient had pupil sparing 3rd nerve
palsy. On taking relevant history was found to be diabetic.
CT scan head showed occipital lobe infarction.Discussion regarding
Fundus exm with direct ophthalmoscope. 45 yr old lady. Both eye showed
primary optic atrophy. Examiner showed a field of bitemporal hemianopia
with down ward progression and discussed the possibilities.
20 yr old male with Arachnodactyly. Initially thought of Marfan's ,
on prompting by the examiner regarding increased elasticity of skin made
a diagnosis of Erhler Danlos syndrome.
20 yr old woman for ocular motility. Patient had minimal exophthalmos,
thyroid enlargement, lid lag, lid retraction and restriction of abduction.
