What Is The Cause?
Who Can It Effect?
Eye cancer affects roughly the same numbers of men and women. Primary intraocular melanoma is more common in white people and less common in black people. White people can burn more from the sunlight, and this is why they are more at risk than black. People over age 50 are most likely to be diagnosed with primary intraocular melanoma. This is because of the immune system being weakened.
