Ocular structures represent extremely rare sites for disseminated malignancy, which can have different origins in primary cancer.
woman's ocular metastasis should suggest primary breast cancer at first.
The diagnosis of metastatic ocular disease is based on clinical and radiological arguments; they should be considered in any visual disturbance, such as exophthalmos, which is the most frequent symptom. The definitive diagnosis is based on histological analysis. Treatment options are focused on improving the patient's quality of life. It is a combination of local and systemic cancer treatments that can help to preserve visual acuity .however, the prognosis remains poor.
In this manuscript, we present a rare case of a woman with ocular metastasis who trained 6 years ago for breast cancer while raising the clinical, paraclinical and therapeutic aspects of this location with a literature review.

Key words: ocular Metastasis, breast cancer. Hormonotherapy
