About the disease

Eye cancer is a cancer, which in most cases originates in the eyeball. Eye cancer can also start to originate in the retina, which is the most common origin of eye cancer development in children. Eye cancer can also be a secondary condition, meaning that cancer from another part of a body spreads to the eye. According to American Cancer Society, lung and breast cancer are the most common primary types of cancer, which can spread to the eye. In some cases melanoma, which is a skin cancer, can develop in an eye part, known as uvea. In such case, this type of cancer is called uveal melanoma. More rarely, cancer of eye develops in the lymphocytes, which are immune system cells. Lymphomas in general can sometimes develop in the internal organs, including an eye, but this happens very seldom. Sometimes cancer can originate in the tissues around the eyeball, such as orbit, eyelid or skin around the eye.

Although the exact cause of eye cancer has not been determined yet, certain factors can cause its development. Such factors include genetic predisposition and long exposure to certain adverse environmental factor. Also, eye cancer is considered to be slightly more common in males than in females. White people are more likely to develop eye cancer than Africans or Asians. People who have moles on their skin of a very large size are more susceptible to developing melanoma during their lifetime, including uveal melanoma. Sun exposure can also be very dangerous and certain professional occupations, such as chemical workers, are in the risk if eyes are exposed to chemicals. That`s why chemical workers need to wear special protective glasses as the time of exposure. Weak immune system can also become a cause of eye cancer.  People with blue and green eyes are also more susceptible to eye cancer than people with dark and brown eyes.

Symptoms

  • Pain in the eye
  • Dark spot on the pupil
  • Bulge in the eye
  • Blurred vision
  • Loss of vision, which can be partial or full in some progressed stages
  • An eye changes its appearance
  • Change of eyeball position

Diagnosis

  • During a general examination doctor will examine an eye of a patient for the signs of dark spots, bulges or lumps, which can be present in case of an eye cancer. A doctor will also direct a special light to determine if the light perception of an eye is normal.
  • Echography is a type of ultrasound, which allows the ophthalmologist to examine the eye with special sound waves. A device is placed against the eyeball to create an image of all parts of the eye. This type of diagnosis is especially used for diagnosis eye melanoma, which changes the appearance of the eye in a specific way seen by echography.
  • MRI and CT scan are used to determine if cancer has spread to other organs, such as brain or spinal cord, or if it is originated somewhere else.

Treatment

  • Radiation therapy is used to irradiate the cancerous cells of the eye. It is most effective in eye melanomas. It is possible to preserve the vision after radiation therapy if vital structures of the eye have not been damaged.
  • Laser treatment uses thermotherapy to kill the cancerous cells by using the light energy. This way the light burns the cancerous tissue and prevents it from spreading further.
  • Eyeball removal (enucleation) is a surgery, used to remove the eyeball. It is recommended in progressed stages and is most commonly advised for patients with an eye melanoma. After the eyeball is removed a special orbital implant is put in the place of an eye. It is then attached to the muscles responsible for moving the eye. After some time passed, an artificial eye is placed onto the orbital implant, which would fit the size and color of a healthy eye. Modern techniques allow for an artificial eye to look almost as natural as a healthy eye.
