What you'll learn

Chemical contamination may lead to temporary or permanent damage to the eyes. Eye injuries are the most common injuries in children as well as in adults. Most common etiology for eye injuries include road traffic accidents, ball injuries. Eye drop instillation is the dispensation of sterile ophthalmic medication into the patient’s eye whereas eye irrigation is used to flush and clean any dust particles or chemicals from conjunctiva and cornea. This is also used as a pre-operative procedure before any eye surgeries or to manage any infections. read more »»

Medical emergencies like ocular burns also cause loss of vision when not treated at appropriate times. Knowledge of eye injuries, the anatomy of the eye, medications used for installation, irrigation, how long it should be done are very important for health care professionals to react faster in medical emergencies.

As a nurse or medical assistant in a doctor’s office, you may be asked to assist with minor eye injuries or eye treatment. This module provides a detailed overview of how to prepare for and perform irrigation of the patient’s eye and instill eye medication.

Including both Learn and Test modes, the online simulator offers two scenarios that test your ability to irrigate the eye with sterile saline solution and instill drops of medication into the eye. Practice the steps of the procedures online as often as you want, until you are confident. This module is based on the entry-level competencies for which the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHEP) and Accrediting Bureau of Health Education Schools (ABHES) test the Medical Assistant.
