Ocular Oncology (Cancer)

This service diagnoses and treats adult ocular tumours.

Moorfields Eye Hospital is one of only four centres in the UK to a highly specialist ocular oncology service, treating tumours of the eye.

Many tumours, such as a cyst, haemorrhage or naevus (mole) are benign.

As well as benign vascular tumours, intraocular lymphoma and uveal tract metastases, we treat a rare type of eye cancer called uveal tract melanoma. This is a very rare cancer with approximately 600 new cases diagnosed each year in England. 

In addition, we treat patient with ocular surface tumours such as conjunctival lymphoma, conjunctival melanoma/primary acquired melanosis, squamous cell carcinoma and associated conjunctival intraepithelial neoplasia.
