Jay C. Rudd, M.D. | Wills Eye Hospital, Philadelphia, PA
History
A 69 yo woman presented to her primary ophthalmologist with the chief complaint of a painful, red, right eye for two days. The pain would awaken her FROM sleep. Past ocular and medical histories were negative. Over the next two weeks, she was treated for chronic angle closure glaucoma with Timoptic XE, Pilocarpine 2%, Alphagan, and two YAG peripheral iridotomies. She had no relief of symptoms, and sought a second opinion. Current medications included Timoptic XE, Alphagan, and Synthroid.
