 Differential Diagnoses1- Dry eye syndrome of unspecified lacrimal gland- H04.129: Is a multifactorial disorder characterized by abnormalities in the tear film and ocular surface leading to symptoms of irritation, discomfort, and visual disturbance (Buttaro et al, 2013)2- Retained foreign body in unspecified eye, unspecified eyelid- H02-819: The most common symptom of foreign body is severe eye pain in the affected eye. Some patients may present with a foreign body sensation instead of severe pain. Other symptoms include blurred vision, redness, tearing, light sensitivity, eyelid swelling, and blepharospasm (Buttaro et al, 2013)3- Other conjunctivitis- H10.89: is inflammation of the conjunctiva, the transparent mucosal tissue that lines the eye and inner surface of the eyelids. Commonly referred to as pink eye, conjunctivitis actually consists of many different disorders. Infectious causes include viruses and bacteria. Allergic, atopic and vernal, and toxic conjunctivitides are noninfectious (Buttaro et al, 2013)Ocular symptoms include acute onset of a red eye with excessive watery discharge. Itching, photophobia, watering, and foreign body sensation can be present. Patients can often recall the precise moment when symptoms began. Classically, it begins in one eye and then involves the fellow eye within days. Approximately half of patients will have bilateral involvement (Buttaro et al, 2013)Diagnosis– Other conjunctivitis- H10.89
Plan:– Polymyxin B/trimethoprim ophthalmic 0.5% 1 drop into the affected eye four times daily.- Cold compresses to be applied to affected eyes 4-6 times per day.Education:– Discussed with patient risk and benefits of medication.-Take medications as prescribed, do not exceed the recommended dosage; do not stop even if symptoms improve.- Eyes can be clean in the morning from inner to outter canthus using a warm cloth that must not be re-used until washed throughout.- Patients should avoid touching their eyes, shaking hands with others, sharing towels or bedclothes, and swimming in public pools.-Patient instructed on the importance of hands washing with antimicrobial soap to avoid the spread of the disease.- Patient instructed to follow up in a week or contact healthcare provider if symptoms do not improve or continue to worsen.
