An 82-year-old white female is referred from an assisted living facility to the eye clinic for redness of the left eye. She does not answer questions when spoken to and appears to have a blunted affect. She is uncooperative in reading the eye chart. It is very difficult to assess her visual acuity. According to the assisted living facility she does wear glasses and has a history of cataract extractions in both eyes. She is currently only on medication for hypertension. Recently she has become less and less responsive to her environment.
