Treatments for Ocular Melanoma

Your Treatment Begins Here

The course of treatment of your eye melanoma depends on a number of factors, but primarily on the size of the tumor. If the tumor is small enough, you may not have to receive treatment immediately. You may decide to watch the melanoma closely to see if it grows. If that does happen or if the melanoma begins to cause complications, we will put together a treatment plan that works best for you.  

Treatments We Provide

  • Active Monitoring

    Also called "watchful waiting," you can forego the side effects of treatment with careful monitoring of the stage of this cancer.

  • Cryotherapy

    Cryosurgery is used to treat cancer at a non-invasive level. A metal probe cooled with liquid nitrogen kills abnormal cells by freezing them. Cryosurgery can be done in a doctor's office or clinic.

  • Laser Surgery

    This minimally invasive technique uses a powerful beam of light to destroy abnormal cells.

  • Radiation Oncology

    A team of medical professionals with advanced training deliver radiation treatment and care.

  • Surgery for Ocular Melanoma

    A surgery to remove the growth and a small area of tissue around it. Based on the severity of your growth, this surgery can include anything from a small area to the removal of the eye itself.
