    Description
    Ultra-wide field pseudocolor image of a 59-year-old male with a large choroidal melanoma affecting his right eye. Patient presented with a superior visual field defect 3 months prior to examination, but reports that the vision has been "bad" in the right eye since he was 3 years old. The risks, benefits and alternatives for treating the melanoma were thoroughly discussed and the patient has elected to proceed with enucleation, which we will schedule for the near future. Patient reports a brother with "blood cancer" and a father with throat cancer.
