About Ocular Melanoma and MEE

Mass Eye and Ear (MEE), where Mike Kimball was diagnosed and treated, is a major referral center for ocular melanoma cases. You can find quite a bit of information on the MEE website about ocular melanoma.  The Ocular Melanoma Foundation also has some information online.  Dr. Evangelos Gragoudas – a well-known teacher, clinician and researcher at MEE, has been a pioneer in developing treatments for ocular melanoma.  Both he and Ivana Kim, M.D., have several ongoing research projects (please see the following:  Combination Lucentis and Proton Radiation for Choroidal Melanoma and Biochemical, Genetic and Epidemiological Studies of Uveal Melanoma).

More on this as I learn more.
