Most commons are often tested for good reason. As we form our differential diagnoses, we need to be able to recognize what conditions are common and what conditions are uncommon. After all, what good does it do to know the differential list without having a sense of what is common and what is uncommon?
This will be another recurring series that I plan to do, as I put together my review book. Hopefully they will prove to be helpful resources!
What's slowing me down a bit as I put together these most commons is finding references for all of this information. I promise I'm a generally trustworthy source, but I think it makes it a bit easier for you all to study based of the information I'm putting together if I can provide reputable references for the facts I put on the site.
Here are some of the "most common" things I found in the subjects of general ocular disease and trauma:

Are there any other most commons in general ocular disease and trauma that I missed? Do you have any other tips? Leave a comment or contact us!
