Mayo Clinic Talks: The Eyes Have It: Common Eye Conditions
Registration required for CME credit
Guest: Amir R. Khan, M.D.
External eye disorders are commonly seen in a primary care provider’s office, yet very few of us have ever had any formal training in ophthalmology. Fortunately, most of the external eye problems are relatively benign, though not all. It’s important to be able to recognize these conditions since some may be associated with a variety of systemic diseases. In this podcast, Amir Khan, M.D., an ophthalmologist at Mayo Clinic, joins Dr. Chutka to discuss how to recognize commonly seen external eye conditions. Links to specific topics below include additional information and images for most of the covered conditions.
