Abstract

Intraocular tumours may be classified according to a wide range of variables, including their malignant potential, incidence, age of presentation, anatomical location within the eye, tissue from which the tumour arises, relation to systemic disease, and primary site of origin (i.e. a primary ocular tumour vs. secondary deposit from a distant cancer). Patients with intraocular tumours may present with acute vision-related symptoms, such as reduced visual acuity, visual field defects, flashing lights or floaters; however they can be asymptomatic, depending on the size and location of the tumour.
