Abstract

It is important to identify the ocular symptoms that are serious and require an emergent or urgent examination. The symptoms include recent visual loss, double vision, pain, floaters, flashes, and photophobia. Less serious symptoms, which can be evaluated electively, include vague ocular discomfort, tearing, mucous discharge, burning, eyelid symptoms, or proptosis.
