This clinical trial studies the side effects and how well a chemoplaque with topotecan (a medication attached to the outside of the eye) works in treating patients with retinoblastoma. This plaque has to be installed and removed under general anesthesia by the ophthalmology team. It delivers the chemotherapy inside the eye.
