The uveal tract is the most common ophthalmic site of ocular metastasis from systemic tumors due to the luxurious blood flow within the choroidal tissue. However, iris metastasis from systemic cancer is uncommon, accounting for only 8% of cases of uveal metastasis. There are several methods for the treatment of iris tumor. Here, we reported a case of iris metastasis from small-cell lung cancer. The tumor shrunk after systemic treatment for lung cancer and showed no recurrence after a 4-month follow-up.
