Abstract Details


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


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


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.


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


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