Eye Cancer Treatment (Ocular Cancer Treatment) At Centre For Sight

|Radiation is a way for eye cancer treatment (Ocular Cancer Treatment).
This surgical treatment doesn’t put the patient into much discomfort and aims to kill cancer cells using radioactive elements.
|Eye cancer treatment (Ocular Cancer Treatment) is also done with chemotherapy. It is a therapy in which certain drugs are injected into the body of the patient. The drug can be given either by mouth in the form of a pill or can be induced in the affected part through veins. This treatment is only done if the eye cancer becomes severe.||Laser eye cancer treatment which is a type of ocular cancer treatment aims at using heat in the form of a laser to shrink the tumour. This procedure is also known as transpupillary thermotherapy (TTT).
Though, this mode of treatment has fewer side-effects than radiation therapy or eye cancer surgery.
|When eye cancer specialists are not left with any other mode of treatment, then, surgery is the only option left. During the surgery, surgeons typically remove the affected eye altogether or some parts of it depending upon the severity of the case.
Surgery is also seen as one of the standard measures for eye cancer treatment (Ocular Cancer Treatment)
