Tumours of the choroid
Diagnosing a patient with choroidal melanoma is a life sentence. 50% of patients will die within 10 years of diagnosis usually due to metastatic spread. The rarity and variable appearance of these tumours can contribute to preventable delays in care. This webinar will provide you with the tools to describe the typical and atypical appearance of choroidal melanoma, allowing you to arrive at an earlier and more accurate diagnosis.
Key learning objectives:
- Identify a “top 5” list of pseudomelanomas
- Recognise the variable appearance of choroidal melanoma
- Appreciate the implications of appropriate optometric management of choroidal tumours
