Abstract Details

Purpose:

To assess the role of vitreoretinal surgery in maximizing treatment outcome following complications after choroidal tumour radiation treatment and to evaluate its safety.

Setting:

Tertiary Referal Ocular Oncology Unit at Royal Hallamshire Hospital, Sheffield.

Methods:

Retrospective chart study on all patients having vitrectomy following treatment for intraocular tumour at the Royal Hallamshire Hospital, Sheffield from 2012-2017. This is one of three sites for ocular oncology treatment in the NHS. We assessed pre and post op VA, anatomic and functional improvement and complications.

Results:

Indications for surgery included vitreous haemorrhage, epiretinal membrane and retinal detachment. Surgery was successful in achieving anatomic and functional improvement.

Conclusions:

Vitreoretinal surgery was effective in improving or maintaining vision following primary management of choroidal tumours.
