Ocular Oncology

As ocular oncology is a highly specialized field of ophthalmology, there is active international collaboration between ocular oncologists. Ocular oncology is a multidisciplinary service which includes general oncologists, pediatric oncologists, specialist nurses, clinical scientists and many others. The most common malignancies include uveal and conjunctivitis melanoma, uveal metastasis, intraocular and conjunctiva lymphoma and conjunctiva carcinoma. As well as the management of confirmed malignant tumors, ocular oncologists receive a large number of referrals of patients with suspected malignant tumors. Diagnosis is based on bio microscopy, ultrasonography, angiography, optical coherence tomography, auto fluorescence imaging and biopsy. The most common benign tumors include naive, chordal hemangioma. Vasoproliferative tumors and retinal hemangioblastomas. Many of these lesions require treatment and/or long-term surveillance. Eyelid and orbital tumors are more likely to be managed within oculoplastic or orbital specialist services.
