Ocular Oncology

What is Ocular Oncology?

Ocular oncology, a specialized field within ophthalmology, focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of eye cancer. At Centre For Sight, Hyderabad we are dedicated to delivering top-tier care in ophthalmic oncology, ensuring that patients receive the most advanced and comprehensive treatments available.

Ocular Cancer Diagnostics

Our journey commences with a meticulous diagnostic process in the realm of ocular oncology. Our highly skilled ophthalmologists, including ocular oncology specialists, employ cutting-edge imaging techniques, such as ultrasound, optical coherence tomography (OCT), and angiography, to assess the extent and nature of ocular cancer. Confirmatory procedures like biopsies and fine-needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) are conducted to solidify the diagnosis.

Ocular Cancer Treatment Planning

Once the diagnosis is confirmed, our team of specialists collaborates to craft a personalized treatment plan. The choice of treatment depends on the type, size, location, and stage of the ocular cancer. Treatment options may encompass:

Surgery: Surgical intervention may be required to excise the tumor or, in more severe cases, the entire eye (enucleation). Our expert surgeons are dedicated to preserving as much vision as possible while ensuring the complete removal of cancerous tissue.

Radiation Therapy: This includes approaches like brachytherapy and external beam radiation, which precisely target and eradicate cancer cells. Our advanced radiation technologies minimize harm to surrounding healthy tissue.

Chemotherapy: Chemotherapy drugs may be administered systemically (through the bloodstream) or topically (directly onto the eye’s surface) to annihilate cancer cells.

Cryotherapy: In certain instances, cryotherapy, utilizing freezing temperatures, may be employed to treat small tumors or abnormal blood vessels.

Follow-Up and Monitoring:

Subsequent to treatment, our team provides vigilant post-treatment care, encompassing regular follow-up appointments. These visits are crucial for monitoring progress, detecting any signs of recurrence, and managing potential treatment side effects.
