Abstract

Ocular emergencies are commonly encountered in general practice. Understanding the different disease processes of the most common conditions will help veterinary nurses to give adequate advice to the distressed owners and will ensure that the patients are cared for in the best possible way. The nurse's role during the conversation with the owner, particularly in view of recognising the seriousness of the condition, as well as owner education during the treatment period, should be emphasised. In this second of two articles, the management of ocular emergencies, including sudden onset blindness, corneal oedema and diabetic cataracts, are discussed.
