Answer

Answer

Several modes of treatment are available for choroidal melanomas. Multiple factors are taken into account when deciding one approach over other approaches, such as visual acuity of the affected eye, visual acuity of the contralateral eye, size of the tumor, age and general health of the patient, ocular structures involved, and presence of metastases.
