Tx: Surgical removal is definitive
||Contact lens wearers, caused by deep infection in the cornea by bacteria, viruses or fungi.
Tx: Immediate referral - if immediate referral is not possible, it is reasonable to start topical ophthalmic antibiotics without delay
|Keratitis||Dendritic ulcer with fluorescein stain = Herpes Simplex Keratitis|
|Pterygium (ReelDx)||Elevated, superficial, fleshy, triangular-shaped “growing” fibrovascular mass (most common in the inner corner/nasal side of the eye)
