This cancer forms in the tissues in and around the eye and include lymphoma, carcinoma, intraocular melanoma, and retinoblastoma. Intraocular melanoma is rare and begins in the cells that make melanin, the pigment that makes eyes and skin a specific color.
Retinoblastoma can occur in one of both eyes, but is mostly diagnosed in children ages 2-5. However, the most common kind of eye cancer in adults is uveal metastases, which is cancer that spreads to the uvea from another area of the body.
Patients with eye cancer may have symptoms that include seeing spots or squiggly lines, seeing flashes of light, unclear vision, losing parts of the field of vision, or a dark spot on the iris.
