Dr. Robert Osher and his colleagues set out to save an eye from enucleation. A patient diagnosed with choroidal melanoma received radioactive plaque therapy and experienced no initial loss of vision while the tumor shrank and became inactive. However, several years later she began experiencing deteriorating vision and symptoms so severe that she considered enucleation of her right eye. To save the eye, Dr. Osher implanted a special foldable black IOL from that resolved the patient’s symptoms.
