Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/22/2018 -- Ophthalmic cancer, commonly referred as eye cancer, is a malignancy that grows in the eye. Malignant cells are cancerous cells that grow uncontrollably at a rapid pace. They also spread to others tissues of the body. Ocular melanoma is type of cancer that develops in cells which produces pigment that give color to the eyes.
Ocular melanoma develops in uvea called choroid which is a pigment layer lining the eyeball. Most melanomas develop in the choroid; however, they can also develop in the iris (colored area around pupil). Melanomas in iris grow slowly and do not spread to other parts of the body. Primary intraocular lymphoma, is a type of cancer which involves lymphocytes.
This is a rare type of cancer, which usually occurs in individuals with weak immune systems. The third type of cancer is retinoblastoma, which is a caused due to genetic mutation in retina, a light sensitive tissue, where retinal nerve cells begin to grow and multiply and then further spread to other parts of eyes.
The ophthalmic cancer treatment market is driven by increasing prevalence of eye cancer. Rise in the number of eye cancer cases is due to factors such as increase exposure to UV radiation from laptops, mobile phones, and greenhouse effect. Immunological disorders weaken immune system.
