• We present a consecutive series of ten patients (12 eyes) with symptomatic intraocular metastases from primary cutaneous malignant melanoma, with emphasis on the variation in clinical features and extent of intraocular involvement. An investigation of each patient's history and the presence of other concurrent metastatic foci help to establish the diagnosis. Palliative radiation therapy may help to control the intraocular metastatic foci and limit the visual loss.
