The Ocular Oncology Program at Smilow Cancer Hospital cares for patients with benign and malignant tumors of the eye, the eyelids, and the orbit. It is one of only a few centers in the nation dedicated full-time to ocular oncology within a cancer hospital. As most cancers of the eye and orbit are rare, treatment at a center with extensive expertise and experience is important. Our ocular oncology team is dedicated to individualized and integrated care for each patient.
The Ocular Oncology Program at Smilow collaborates with caregivers in other specialties including melanoma, breast cancer, neuro-oncology, radiation oncology, pediatric oncology, and lung cancer.
