Lymphoma is a cancer. One of the most common symptoms of intraocular
lymphoma is decreased vision with uveitis.
Tumor cells can
involve the vitreous, retina, optic nerve, or choroid. They are found
less often in the anterior segment. Ocular Lymphoma is often linked with
lymphomas of the brain, which are known as primary central nervous
system (CNS) lymphomas
Because lymphomas of the eye often spread
to the brain or have already spread when the cancer is first diagnosed,
in many cases both the eye and the brain are treated.
