In brief: Laser melanoma
Ocular melanoma is not treated by destruction but by removal and the laser can be used as a cutting device.
A retinal specialist would be the best to answer this in detail and they would need to know more details.

In brief: In general, yes...
Surgery for any given tumor (om or otherwise) is always very patient specific.
What works for one patient may be totally inappropriate for another. The best therapy depends on the details of a patient, which necessarily can't be discussed here. Seek out a facility and physician team that has lots of experience with your type of tumor.
