Ophthalmic Oncology

Ocular oncologists at UT Southwestern Medical Center treat eye tumors and tumors of the tissues surrounding the eye using the most advanced diagnostic and treatment methods available.

The diagnostic resources available at UT Southwestern are among the most advanced in the nation. Tests may include ultrasound, eye “photographs” such as fluorescein angiography, fundus photography, CT scans, PET scans, and MRIs, as well as pupillary and ocular motion evaluations. Early detection of eye tumors and ocular cancer can enhance the outcome of treatments.

UT Southwestern ocular oncologists use chemotherapy, cryotherapy, pinpointed beam radiation therapy (Accuray technology), radiation plaque therapy, and enucleation, or surgical removal of the eye, to treat ocular cancer.

Our team works closely with multiple specialists including oculoplastic surgeons for reconstructive surgery, as well as oncologists, radiologists, neurosurgeons, ear, nose, and throat surgeons, and interventional neuroradiologists.

Some of the eye cancers we treat include:

  • Choroidal tumors
  • Conjunctival tumors
  • Eyelid tumors
  • Iris tumors
  • Lacrimal gland tumors
  • Orbital tumors
  • Retina tumors such as retinoblastoma
  • Tumors metastatic to the eye
  • Tumors of the optic nerve
  • Tumors related to leukemia and lymphoma
