What does Ocular Oncology mean?

Eye Cancer, as the name suggests refers to the cancer of the eye and its surrounding structures. While lung cancer, brain cancer, or breast cancer are widely known among every household, there has been a substantial unawareness regarding eye cancer. What’s more interesting to note, is that, India leads the chart in eye cancer of children. Even though eye cancer can affect anyone, at any age; its main targets include kids and old-age people.

An early diagnosis can help in fighting against it and treat eye cancer. At The Sight Avenue, we adhere to new technology with protocol-based treatment for our patients.

Parts Affected by Eye Cancer

It can affect any part of the eye, ranging from eyelids, conjunctiva, cornea, retina, soft tissues surrounding the eye, optic nerve to orbit. Cancer can also sometimes develop in the tissues surrounding your eyeball or spread to the eye from other parts of the body, such as the lungs or breasts.

We have the best eye cancer doctors in Delhi to help you with any of these eye cancers with their years of expertise.

  2.     White reflex in the eye
  3.     Pain in the eye

Cancers are known to be fatal; but with the advancement of technology, eye cancer is not a death sentence anymore. It is very much treatable and can be brought under control. The treatment options available for Eye Cancer, are:

Chemotherapy

Chemotherapy can be administered via various routes from intravenous, intrathecal, intra-arterial, intravitreal, subconjunctival to topical eye drops depending on the type and size of the eye cancer.

Radiotherapy

Radiotherapy provides a more modernized and effective approach to eye cancer. It is specifically oriented according to the type and size of the eye cancer.
