To date, I have had three WLE for known cutaneous melanoma, all with clear margins. I was disturbed when my optometrist pointed out a "CHRPE" during a recent routine eye exam.

Prior to moving to Maine from Baltimore, my previous regular eye exams had been done by an opthamologist at the Johns Hopkins WIlmer Eye Institute; gievn the doctor's reputation, I believe he would have found this condition i a prior exam.

My understanding is that ocular and cutaneous melanoma are entirely different / unrelated, but would welcome insights from anyone regarding "chirpees" as these seem to be called.

Thank you
