Benefits of Radiation Therapy for Ocular Cancer
Radiation therapy is a proven treatment option with a low risk of complications
Learn About Ocular Cancer
Ocular cancer is a rare condition that affects the eyes and surrounding tissues
The most common cancers affecting the eye do not start there. Instead, these cancers originate elsewhere in the body, especially the breasts and lungs, and spread to the eye.
Ocular cancer is rare. In fact, according to the American Cancer Society, there are only about 3,500 new cases diagnosed a year. There are often no early symptoms or warning signs, especially if the cancer is small and not located close to the vital structures of the eye. Eye cancer is most treatable when it is discovered early, so everyone should have a dilated eye exam once a year with an eye doctor.
Advantages of Radiation Therapy for Ocular Cancer
A minimally invasive, precise, and effective treatment option
Radiation therapy allows for precise targeting of cancerous cells, minimizing damage to surrounding healthy tissue and preserving eye function
Unlike traditional surgical methods, radiation therapy is a non-invasive option for treating ocular cancer, reducing the risk of complications and scarring
Radiation therapy has been shown to be an effective treatment for ocular cancer, helping to shrink tumors, relieve symptoms, and improve overall quality of life for patients
