Choroidal mass may be a presenting sign of systemic malignancy. The diagnosis of metastatic ocular tumor is important because it can indicate poor prognosis. We report a case of a 45-year-old man presenting to our clinic with the complaint of decreased vision in the left eye, which is the initial finding of non-small cell lung-carcinoma.
