Melanoma, a type of cancer that occurs in the cells that produce melanin, can develop in the eye – most commonly in the uvea, the middle layer of the eye. Our staff at the Goldschleger Eye Institute and the Ella Lemelbaum Institute for Immuno-oncology at Sheba Medical Center offers a range of specialized medical and surgical services for eye disease. Malignant eye tumors are rare, and our multidisciplinary physicians are experienced leaders in their fields, providing the latest ocular melanoma treatment in Israel. Our goal is to save lives, preserve the eye, and protect against vision loss. We embrace the most progressive, personalized methods, such as brachytherapy, to achieve our goals.
