A woman in her 40s was referred to her local university for ophthalmic examination. She had been receiving care for dry eye syndrome, hyperopia, and presbyopia by another eye care clinician, and on routine examination a circumscribed elevation of her right iris was found. She noted intermittent shooting pain responsive to artificial tears in this eye; otherwise, she was without ophthalmic symptoms. She did not have any significant medical or family history, and review of symptoms was unremarkable.
