Current surgical approaches for cancer are emphasizing minimal trauma—the so-called no-touch technique of tumor removal. Tumor seeding through the circulatory system seems reasonable, particularly with friable and necrotic tumors. Attempts to reduce metastatic seeds should originate with the original procedure. Enucleation of nontumor eyes with simultaneous intraocular manometry has shown which surgical maneuvers elevate intraocular pressure and how ocular massage can be avoided. Our surgical procedure involves a delicate surgical technique coupled with transscleral cryocoagulation to immobilize the tumor's blood supply.
