The Eye Tumour Outpatient Clinic is responsible for the conservative eye tumour surgery in the entire country. Majority of our patients are from other hospital districts outside HUS area. The most common treated illnesses are malign melanomas of the uvea, metastases inside the eye, and tumours of the conjunctiva, iris, and ciliary body. The most common treatment for eye melanoma is brachytherapy. This treatment and the first follow-ups afterwards are centred in HUH. Tailored follow-ups for the treatment continue for years.
