Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This collection is the second edition of the previous Special Issue "New Perspectives of Ocular Oncology": https://www.mdpi.com/journal/cancers/special_issues/NPOC.

Ocular oncology is a subspeciality of ophthalmology, dedicated to the research, diagnosis, and treatment of neoplastic lesions affecting the eye and its adnexa, including the orbit. In recent years, progress in the identification of new intraocular biomarkers of eye neoplasia, new diagnostic imaging technologies, and some new insights into treatment modalities have contributed to the advancement of this subspecialty. The local treatment of benign intraocular tumors and metastatic intraocular disease is also a challenging topic. Local tumor irradiation is the most common treatment of uveal melanoma, the most common primary intraocular tumor in adults. The prevention and treatment of radiation chorioretinopathy deserve special attention, mostly because personalized therapy may contribute to vision salvage. Intraocular tumors in pediatric age have also received special attention from the genetic and pathophysiologic approach. Therefore, ocular oncology not only needs attention from ophthalmologists, but also from all medical specialties involved in the diagnosis and treatment of ocular and orbital tumors. This Special Issue is devoted to reporting on new aspects of this subspeciality, from any perspective.

Prof. Dr. Edoardo Midena
