Choroidal metastases from the lung are very rare accounting about 0.1%–7%. The most common site of ocular metastasis is choroid due to its abundant blood supply. Lung cancers commonly metastasize to the liver, bone, brain, and adrenals. Here, we present a very rare case of squamous cell carcinoma lung in a young nonsmoker patient with metastasis only to eye and no evidence of distant metastasis. This is a very rare case as metastasis to eyes itself is a very rare occurrence and has been mainly reported with adenocarcinoma and small-cell carcinoma. The other features which make this case rare are that squamous cell carcinoma is common in smokers and usual age of diagnosis is >50 years of age and this patient was only 38 years of age and nonsmoker. The aim of this case report is to emphasize the importance of thorough patient evaluation and effect of systemic chemotherapy on ocular metastatic lesions.
