Patient education

It is very important for patients undergoing treatment for benign and malignant tumors of the eye and surrounding tissues to have accurate and up to date information regarding their condition.  The following pages provide a summary of information on specific ocular cancers, procedures used to treat those cancers and the results of those treatments.  The best information regarding your specific condition can always be obtained from your treating physician, as he or she knows the specific circumstances which may affect how the general information provided in these pages applies to you.  Additionally, there is an abundance of information on these topics available on the internet.  We would caution you from placing too much emphasis on information obtained from general sites on the internet, as often that information has not been thoroughly or critically reviewed.
