In brief: Retinoblastoma

Since retinoblastoma can be a bilateral disorder the treatment varies with the findings when the diagnosis is made.
A vitreoretinal specialist would be the person to discuss this with.

In brief: Several

This is a complex disease that has many different treatment options, all based on stage and symptoms and age of the patient.
Removal of the eye (enucleation), radiation, chemotherapy, cryotherapy and thermotherapy are all considerations. These remedies have many modes of administration -- so 400 characters is not enough to go into all of the nuances of treatment.
