Abstract

Ophthalmic emergencies may be complicated by occult but clinically significant raised intraocular pressure (IOP). We present a case of hypertensive uveitis accompanied by the finding of retinal arterial pulsation, which when visualised by direct ophthalmoscopy allows the generalist to identify significantly raised IOP requiring urgent specialist evaluation.
