Tumours of the Eye
Recognition of intraocular tumours at an early stage is now possible because of an increased awareness by the physician, the use of both direct and indirect ophthalmoscopy, and the availability of advanced diagnostic aids such as fluorescein angiography and ultrasonography. Advances in chromosomal studies have provided insight into the development of several tumours including retinoblastoma, and have aided genetic counselling. The recognition of new syndromes and the reappraisal of existing data and survival studies by statistical analysis have led to modifications in treatment and preservation of the eye. It remains to be seen whether the new non-surgical approach will have an effect on mortality.
