Eye service within a penitentiary has several critical issues, primarily the correct assessment of urgency by the general physician (usually always in service): it is necessary to move police officers and transport the patient in an emergency department or the patient can wait for the ophthalmologist when in duty? Moreover, consultations must contend with a poor instrumentation (if compared to an ophthalmology department) and with difficulty to prescribe exams outside of the penitentiary structure. The ophthalmologist operating in a prison has to focus on the essentials, trying to follow the modern guidelines. Aim of this paper was to give some ideas to discuss about.
