Is Stat Eye Consult a Provider for the Case Scenarios Discussed?

No. There should be no identifying information in case scenarios or questions submitted. As such, these scenarios are based on hypothetical situations for teaching purposes. We understand that case scenarios will likely be based on situations encountered by the provider, but since our physicians do not see any of those patients in a real-time setting, there are limitations. The licensed provider examining and treating the patient is responsible for their patient. Stat Eye Consult is designed to help, support, and supplement the knowledge of the provider caring for the patient, not make specific decisions for care.
