Having a systematic approach to a “Complete Eye Exam” is an important tool for a beginning ophthalmology resident. This lecture is meant for the first year residents but second and third years may use it as a review. The talk will focus on how to examine the eye, keeping in mind that we need to look at the patient as a whole being. Implications of pertinent positive and negative findings in history and exam will be discussed in detail.
