    Iris Flocculi
    Patrick Droste, MD and Master of Science | Pediatric Ophthalmology P.C Grand Rapids,Michigan
    I am very grateful to Drs Jerry and Carol Shields for teaching us so much about ocular tumors. I take their courses regularly at the American Association of Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus (AAPOS), and the American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO) meetings each fall. I learned about these iris flocculi from Dr. about 30 years ago at an AFIP course in Washington,D.C. I have seen 10 cases.
