I HAD A PATIENT recently who denied backing into my front-office ramp and railing. When I went outside to discuss it with her, she demonstrated how she didn’t back into the ramp and railing by doing it again. She was apologetic and really didn’t realize she had hit it the first time. — Dr. Marc Ullman, Academy Vision, Pine Beach, NJ

I initially thought it was a chalazion that she had been picking at until I looked under the slit lamp. What I thought was a scab actually had legs. It was a tick embedded in her lid margin! — Kimberly Riggs, OD, Ligonier, PA
