Patient Care Philosophy

"An appointment with your doctor can be stressful. Meeting an ‘oncologist’ can magnify the stress.   I believe knowledge provides the power to combat stress and anxiety. I enjoy teaching my patients about what I see in their eyes and providing them with information and options, then together we can come up with the best course of action."

Clinical interests

Dr. Stacey specializes in ocular oncology. He sees patients with conjunctival tumors (papilloma, intraepithelial neoplasia, squamous cell carcinoma, melanoma, lymphoma), adult intraocular tumors (iris melanoma, ciliary body melanoma, choroidal melanoma, intraocular metastasis, intraocular lymphoma, retinal angiomas, choroidal hemangiomas, vasoproliferative tumors of the retina), and pediatric intraocular tumors and vascular abnormalities (retinoblastoma, medulloepithelioma, Coats' disease).

Research focus

Dr. Stacey’s research focuses on both adult and pediatric ocular oncology. In uveal (ocular) melanoma, Dr. Stacey is working to improve late diagnosis through the use of artificial intelligence. He leads a group of numerous eye cancer specialists in developing algorithms to find melanoma faster. In retinoblastoma, Dr. Stacey works with many international collaborations to identify disparities in retinoblastoma outcomes for children from resource limited countries. His laboratory focuses also on improving diagnosis of retinoblastoma through liquid biopsy. Dr. Stacey’s lab is very productive and the vast majority of his projects are carried out with the help of trainees. He is always looking for eager trainee researchers.
