Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Although some ocular tumors are symptomatic, others can be silent. An examination routine is suggested which could reveal such silent intraocular lesions, and special diagnostic procedures for patients with suspicious intraocular lesions are presented. The legal responsibility of optometrists for the detection of silent and symptomatic ocular tumors is described also, and the standard of care for patients at high risk for tumors is discussed.
