Cryotherapy (or cryosurgery) is the technique of precise freezing and thawing of undesirable tissue resulting in cell death and regression. It is a highly effective technique available to the ophthalmologist for local control and eradication of various intra- and periocular tumors and can serve as an alternative or adjunct to other methods such as surgery or radiotherapy.
