What is Ocular Cancer? 

Ocular cancer, also known as eye cancer, occurs when abnormal cells grow in or around the eye. It can affect various parts of the eye, including the iris, retina, and optic nerve. This type of cancer can be either primary, originating in the eye, or secondary, spreading from another part of the body.

Symptoms may include vision changes, visible growths, or changes in the appearance of the eye. Early detection through regular eye exams is essential for effective management and care. 

Common Risk Factors

  • Exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation: Prolonged exposure to sunlight without proper eye protection can increase the risk of developing ocular cancer. 
  • Age: The likelihood of ocular cancer increases with age, particularly for individuals over 50. 
  • Family history: A family history of ocular cancer or certain genetic conditions can elevate the risk. 
  • Fair skin and light eyes: Individuals with fair skin and light-colored eyes are at a higher risk due to lower levels of protective melanin. 
  • Certain eye conditions: Pre-existing eye conditions, such as nevi (eye moles) or other benign growths, can sometimes develop into cancer. 

The CyberKnife for Ocular Cancer

Ocular cancer, though relatively rare, poses significant risks to vision and overall eye health. Traditional treatment methods often come with challenges and side effects that can impact the delicate structures of the eye.

Enter the CyberKnife System, a revolutionary technology offering new hope for those battling ocular cancer. This advanced, non-invasive radiation therapy system promises precision and effectiveness, aiming to preserve vision while targeting cancerous cells.

Benefits of the CyberKnife

  • Non-Invasive: The CyberKnife treatment does not require any incisions, reducing the risk of infection and eliminating the need for anesthesia.
  • Precision: The system’s ability to target tumors with sub-millimeter accuracy means less damage to surrounding healthy tissue, which is critical for preserving vision.
  • Fewer Sessions: Treatment is typically completed in just a few sessions, compared to the multiple weeks required for conventional radiation therapy.
  • Minimal Side Effects: Due to its precision, the CyberKnife often results in fewer side effects, allowing patients to maintain a better quality of life during and after treatment.
  • Outpatient Procedure: Treatments are performed on an outpatient basis, meaning patients can return home the same day and resume their normal activities quickly.
