Supplementary Material

We performed the extraction of the tumor. Briefly, endolaser photocoagulation was applied to surround the tumor and the retinectomy at the surface of the tumor was done after total vitrectomy was performed. 20-gauge pars plana sclerotomies were made by 20-gauge V-lances at 3 and 9 o’clock position. The tumor was chipped off from sclera by the V-lances and a 25-gauge intraocular scissor.
