  • Disorders of the iris (cysts, nevi, melanoma)
  • Conjunctival lesions (nevi, pre-malignant and malignant growths such as squamous cell carcinoma or melanoma)
  • Pediatric conditions (Retinoblastoma, Familial Exudative Retinopathy (FEVR))

Full spectrum of clinical imaging is utilized in evaluation of patients in the Ocular Oncology clinics, including:

  • Wide angle photography and angiography
  • B-scan ultrasonography
  • Ultrasound Biomicroscopy (UBM)
  • OCT (including enhanced depth imaging)
