Oncology refers to the branch dealing with eye cancers. Ocular oncology is the branch that deals with cancers of the eye. These cancers of the eye can be tumours of the eyelid such as basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, malignant melanoma and other such tumours. The treatment of these tumours is highly specialized especially when they are found in the vicinity of the eye.
Paediatric patients are also treated for different intraocular malignancies.
Eye Cancer Treatment
A trained eye cancer surgeon can treat the tumour without damaging the structures around the eye, retaining maximum function of the eyelids and preserving the aesthetics.
Other ocular tumours treated include intraocular tumours such as retinoblastoma, choroidal melanoma, choroidal metastasis, lymphoma, choroidal osteoma and a host of other conditions.
Surface or conjunctival tumours such as ocular surface squamous neoplasia are also under the domain of an ocular oncologist.
Sometimes Eye (ocular) cancers are treated by radiotherapy, chemotherapy, which only an eye doctor trained in eye cancers can determine accurately.
