    A 71-year-old female treated with plaque brachytherapy for choroidal melanoma in her left eye 10 years ago. She subsequently developed radiation retinopathy OS for which she was regularly receiving intravitreal injections of bevacizumab. The result is a stable visual acuity at 20/30. The patient continues to be regularly monitored.
