Choroidal melanoma

A choroidal melanoma is a tumor that arises beneath the retina. It can sometimes cause blurred vision, flashes, or floaters but often is asymptomatic and found during a routine exam. It can be treated in different ways depending on the size of the tumor. It can spread to other parts of the body, so evaluation with an internist is also necessary.
