    External radiation


    In 2005, I had proton beam radiation of the tumor in my right eye. I was fascinated by the technology; the procedure was pretty painless and the side effects were minimal (lost vision in right eye, but that was expected). It's been 7 years and the tumor is still 'dead.'

    Painless Experience: Agree
    Minimal Side Effects: Agree
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Agree
