TITLE Ocular Dermatology in Primary Eye Care
ABSTRACT: Primary care optometrists are commonly faced with patients asking them to evaluate a variety of head and periocular lesions. Additionally, during routine external and biomicroscopic examinations, practitioners may encounter various skin lesions that have been unnoticed or ignored by the patient. The primary goal of the practitioner is to ascertain by history and examination whether this patient should be referred for biopsy and/or further testing. The practitioner should feel confident monitoring benign lesions as well. This article reviews some simple techniques that can be employed in the optometric office to evaluate lid and periocular skin lesions. The goal is to enable the practitioner to improve his or her ability to determine the urgency of the patientís condition and the follow-up that is required. Also, several common skin cancers are discussed, to provide a review of the common characteristics associated with each cancer.  Author(s): David P. Sendrowski, OD, FAAO; Lori L. Floyd, OD; Arthur B.
