Metastatic tumors to the choroid are the most common intraocular malignancies. The lung represents the first primary site for choroidal metastasis among men and the second among women after the breast. A decrease in visual acuity or other ophthalmic manifestations as the initial clinical presentation of lung cancer primarily is infrequent.

This article reports a case of choroidal metastasis as an inaugural manifestation of lung adenocarcinoma, successfully treated with docetaxel, cisplatinum, and intravenous bevacizumab as an antiangiogenesis therapy. A complete remission was obtained after 4 cycles and maintained after six cycles. This case report demonstrates the importance of the systemic bevacizumab and chemotherapy in the treatment of choroidal metastasis from adenocarcinoma of the lung.
