Managing Common Eye Conditions in the Pharmacy

A pigmented or nonpigmented mole on the conjunctiva of the eye is known as a nevus. The nevus may be flat or slightly raised.[1] Since nevi are normally harmless, no treatment is necessary, unless they become malignant. Patients should be referred for further investigation if the nevus is growing. The presence of nevi on the iris is an indication of neurofibromatosis type 1, an autoimmune disease.
