Abstract

Metastatic tumors are the most common intraocular neoplasms. A rare case of adenocarcinoma of the stomach with simultaneous presentation of bilateral intraocular metastases is reported with a review of the literature. The prompt improvement in vision that occurred in this patient following radiation therapy underscores its important role in reducing the visual morbidity of patients with metastatic intraocular tumors.
