Eye cancer is a particularly challenging type of cancer to treat due to its proximity to the brain. Fortunately, a variety of treatment options are available, and the prognosis for eye cancer patients has improved greatly in the past several years.
Medical treatment for eye cancer can include radiation, surgery or thermotreatment (laser therapy). Radiation therapy is particularly difficult in ocular oncology and may not be possible in all cases. However, patients with ocular tumors may also be candidates for other treatment options such as proton therapy.
The first priority in ocular oncology is always preserving the life of the patient. Doctors will also make every effort to preserve the patient's vision, and will also take cosmetic factors into consideration.
The treatment of ocular tumors is generally a multidisciplinary effort, requiring coordination between many different medical specialists.
