Abstract

ABSTRACT: The evaluation and management of periocular lesions is often a daunting task for the healthcare provider primarily because of the proximity to the eye(s). For those working outside of the field of ophthalmology, lesions present within the ocular adnexa are often ignored, misdiagnosed, or mistreated because of minimal training in this specialty area. This article represents the first in a series of four articles focusing on proper identification, evaluation, and management of common periocular lesions. The commencement of this series will focus on common inflammatory lesions and, more specifically, on hordeola and chalazia.
