Alternative Cancer Treatment Testimonial from Cindy

What is Ocular Melanoma?

Unlocking the possibility of eye melanoma remission starts with knowing vital information about the disease.

Ocular melanoma (melanoma in or around the eye) is a malignant (cancerous) disorder that occurs in the pigment-producing cells. These cells called melanocytes give color to your skin, hair, and eyes. Just like how melanoma can develop on your skin, it can also form inside your eye or on your conjunctiva.

Where Does Ocular Melanoma Occur?

Ocular melanoma, also called eye melanoma, most commonly arises in the cells of the middle layer of your eye (uvea). The uvea has three parts, all of which are susceptible to melanoma:

  • The iris. The colored section in the front of the eye.
  • The choroid layer. The layer of connective tissue and blood vessels between the sclera (white outer layer of the eye) and the retina (the layer at the back of the eyeball).
  • The ciliary body. The front of the uvea secreting the transparent liquid (aqueous humor) into the eye.

In rare cases, eye melanoma can occur on the conjunctiva — the mucous membrane that lines the inside of the eyelids and surrounds the outermost layer of the eye.

Eye Melanoma Symptoms in Men and Women

Signs of ocular melanoma often include:

  • Specks or flashes of dust in your vision (floaters)
  • A gradually enlarging dark spot on the iris
  • A change in the shape of the pupil of your eye
  • Loss of peripheral vision
  • Poor or blurry vision in one eye

Ocular Melanoma Risk Factors

Because eye cancers are unpredictable diseases, the exact cause of ocular melanoma is not understood. However, the following factors may increase a man or woman’s risk:

  • Being white
  • Having light eye color
  • Having dysplastic nevus syndrome, an inherited skin condition
  • Excessive exposure to ultraviolet (UV) light
  • Having certain genetic mutations
  • Increasing age

If you have risk factors for eye melanoma, discuss prevention with your doctor.

Tests for Eye Melanoma

Early diagnosis plays a significant role in improving your ocular melanoma prognosis and life expectancy. Your doctor may recommend these tests to find cancer of the eye:

  • Eye exam, including the use of:
    • Direct ophthalmoscope
    • Indirect ophthalmoscope
    • Gonioscopy lens
  • Ultrasound biomicroscopy (UBM)
  • Optical coherence tomography (OCT)
  • Fluorescein angiography
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan
  • Biopsy (removal of a small piece of the tumor for lab testing)
