Eye Tumors

Tumors of the eye may involve the front of the eye (conjunctiva, iris, ciliary body) or back of the eye (retina, choroid, optic nerve).  Tumors of the eye may originate from eye tissue (primary ocular tumors) or from sites outside of the eye (metastatic tumors).  The most common origin for metastatic tumors include breast and lung.  When feasible, primary tumors are usually treated by excision and radiation.
