Penn Medicine’s Ocular Oncology Program offers comprehensive diagnosis and treatment for ocular tumors (tumors of the eye or surrounding areas), including the eyelid, eyebrow, eye socket and tear ducts.
Our specialists at Penn's Scheie Eye Institute are leading researchers in their respective areas of focus. We are dedicated to developing new ways to treat some of the most difficult diseases of the eye, including retinoblastoma, ocular melanoma, conjunctival malignancies, ocular metastases, and ocular and CNS lymphoma.
Eye cancer or tumors of the eye or surrounding areas, are caused by abnormal cells that have begun to divide or spread among the delicate bones, tissue, nerves, muscles and arteries around the eye. An accurate diagnosis and expertise in understanding how to treat ocular cancer is key to receiving the best possible outcome.
We work closely with the oncologists and cancer specialists at the Abramson Cancer Center to manage cases of eye cancer. You'll receive specialized care from a group of different disciplines, all working toward the goal of providing exceptional care.
