Abstract In this lecture, we discuss some of the more commonly encountered systemic emergencies that may present in optometric offices.  We discuss hypertensive emergencies, hypertension, stroke, anaphylaxis, seizures and hypoglycemia.  We review the diagnosis, management and differentials for each of the conditions and provide recommendations regarding preparation for practicing optometrists.
