Eye cancer does not have specific symptoms and might only be picked up during a health check-up. Some of the suspected signs of eye cancer include shadows, flashes of light, wiggly lines in vision, blurred vision, a dark patch, bulging, lump and pain in the eye, pain, etc.
These signs are not specific only to eye cancer. For example, floaters can also be a sign of ageing. So, having one or two signs from the above-mentioned list does not mean you have eye cancer. The diagnosis of eye cancer is done through an eye exam, biopsy, blood test or imaging tests like ultrasound, optical coherence tomography (OCT), fluorescein angiography, chest x-ray, computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
