Eye Cancer Symptoms

Many times, eye cancer does not have symptoms in the early stages. When it does have signs, they vary from person to person.

Common eye cancer symptoms may include:

  • Loss of vision
  • Blurry vision
  • Flashes and floaters (an object in the field of vision)
  • Pigmented (dark) area on the conjunctiva
  • A small, firm, raised lump with a lesion in the center on the eyelid
  • Ulceration of the eyelid
  • Loss of eyelashes
  • Brown or pigmented lesion on the eyelid
  • Sty that does not heal
  • Growing dark spot on iris
  • Change in pupil shape or size
  • Change of eyeball position or the way eye moves
  • Bulging of eye
  • Double vision
  • Orbital or ocular pain
  • Excessive tearing, bloody tears

These symptoms do not always mean you have ocular cancer. However, it is important to discuss any eye cancer symptoms with your doctor, since they may signal other health problems.
