Metastatic tumors to the choroid - External and Internal Eye
Choroidal metastases can be unilateral or bilateral and can often be asymptomatic. The most common presenting symptoms include blurry vision, flashes or floaters, and rarely pain.
If there is concern for metastatic disease, a thorough history and physical should be taken, followed by appropriate laboratory tests and imaging to uncover the primary tumor.
Diagnosis usually relies on a dilated fundus examination by an ophthalmologist or other ophthalmic imaging studies.
