Renal cell carcinoma (RCC), a tumor originating from the renal cortex, accounts for 2% of all systemic malignancies. About one forth patients have overt metastasis at the time of initial diagnosis of RCC commonly at lung, ain or bones. RCC may rarely get metastasize to eye or eye orbit and may present as an intraocular or orbital mass. Metastasis from a systemic malignancy is one of the most common malignant intraocular tumors in an adult and it is uncommon to have orbital metastases with occult primary disease. Herein we present a case report of a 46 year old male presenting with gradual painless loss of vision which on further investigations was found to be primary RCC metastasizing to eyeball.
