Hurricane Harvey's Impact on Ophthalmology in Texas

Perhaps the greatest lesson I learned from my first hurricane experience was the importance of preparedness. Because the TMC had an advanced flood protection system in place as a consequence of Tropical Storm Allison in 2001, the damage caused by Harvey was less than what might have been. Detailed plans delineating medical care provision were established as soon as Harvey's threat was forecasted. "Ride-out" teams--those designated to remain in-house if entry into/exit from hospitals becomes impossible--were formed. Because of these teams, many patients--including one with endophthalmitis and another with an open globe--were able to receive timely, vision-salvaging care.
