The 40-year-old man arrived at the hospital after noticing that for some time his eyes were always red and he could no longer see very clearly, unfortunately, he was soon diagnosed with eye cancer.

There are many scientific studies that have indicated that the green light of the screen of mobile phones can cause the death of human retinal cells and not only can affect our vision but can also cause more serious diseases.

When we use our mobile phones in a room with little or no light, the light beams will shine directly in your eye. This will make the eye tissue dry longer. In the long run, this can lead to eye cancer and blindness.

Apparently, the man in the picture above always used his cell phone for 30 minutes in the dark every night before bed.

Eye cancer is a broad phrase that refers to a variety of cancers that can develop in various areas of the eye. It happens when healthy cells in or around the eye alter and grow out of control, resulting in a tumor. A tumor might be malignant or benign. The term “benign tumor” refers to a tumor that can develop but not spread. A malignant tumor is one that has the potential to grow and spread to other regions of the body. An intraocular (within the eye) malignancy is cancer that develops in the eyeball.

Ophthalmologists, or “eye MDs,” are medical doctors who specialize in the illnesses and functions of the eye. Intraocular melanoma can be diagnosed and treated by these specialists (see below). Another form of eye doctor is an optometrist. They recommend contact lenses and spectacles. They are not educated to treat intraocular malignancy and are not medical doctors.


Eyes and their components

The eye is a light-collecting organ that delivers instructions to the brain in order to build a picture. The following are the three primary sections of the eye:




Sphere of influence (eye socket)


The eyelid and tear glands are examples of adnexal (accessory) structures.


The sclera, retina, and uvea make up the eye’s outer layer. The sclera is the eyeball’s outer wall. The retina is a layered structure that lines the inside of the eyeball and transmits information from the eye to the brain. The uvea is responsible for nourishing the eye. Blood vessels can be found in both the retina and the uvea.


The uvea is made up of the following components:


The colorful region of the eye that controls the quantity of light that enters the eye is called the iris.


Ciliary body: Muscular tissue that helps the eye focus and creates the watery fluid in the eye.


Choroid: The layer of tissue behind the retina that nourishes the inside of the eye and contains connective tissue and melanocytes, which are pigmented (hued) cells. The most prevalent location for a tumor is the choroid.


Intraocular cancers come in a variety of forms.

Uveal metastases, or cancer that has spread to the uvea from another part of the body, is the most prevalent intraocular malignancy in adults. This is referred to as “secondary cancer.” This page is about primary intraocular cancer, which means the tumor began in the eye and did not spread to other parts of the body.



The most frequent type of primary intraocular cancer in adults is melanoma. It starts when melanocytes, or skin cells, proliferate out of control. Uveal melanoma is another name for intraocular melanoma.


Other forms of intraocular tumors that are less prevalent include:


Lymphoma that starts in the eyeball is known as intraocular lymphoma. This is a rare illness that doctors have a hard time diagnosing. Intraocular lymphoma is classified as a kind of central nervous system lymphoma by several experts. Non-Hodgkin lymphoma is the most common type of intraocular lymphoma.


Retinoblastoma is an uncommon type of eye cancer that affects children.


Hemangioma is a benign tumor that begins in the blood vessels of the choroid and retina.


Other eye tumors that are uncommon include:


A tumor of the conjunctiva, which is a membrane that lines the eyelid and eyeball, is known as conjunctival melanoma. If left untreated, it can spread to the lymph nodes, which are little bean-shaped organs that fight disease and are found throughout the body. Conjunctival melanoma appears as dark spots on the eye’s surface and tends to recur (come back after treatment). On a lesion that seems to be conjunctival melanoma, doctors frequently do a biopsy. A biopsy is a procedure in which a sample of tissue is removed and examined under a microscope.


Eyelid carcinoma (basal or squamous cell) is a type of skin cancer that affects the eyelids. This tumor can be surgically removed and, if caught early enough, is usually not hazardous.


A benign or malignant tumor of the glands that generate tears is known as a lacrimal gland tumor.


Intraocular melanoma frequently has no symptoms. A melanoma is frequently discovered during a routine eye exam by an ophthalmologist. Painless eyesight loss is the most prevalent symptom.


The following symptoms or indicators may be experienced by those who have ocular cancer. Eye cancer patients may not exhibit any of these symptoms. Alternatively, these symptoms could be caused by anything other than cancer.


Having difficulty seeing


A portion of one’s field of vision is lost.


Seeing light flashes


Spots, squiggly lines, or floating objects are visible (floaters)


The presence of a dark patch on the iris. Iris melanoma, unlike choroidal and ciliary body melanoma, may be noticed since it appears as dark spots on the eye.


Please consult your doctor if you are concerned about one or more of the symptoms or indicators on this list. In addition to other questions, your doctor will inquire about how long and how frequently you’ve been experiencing the symptom(s). This is to assist in determining the cause of the condition, which is referred to as a diagnosis.


If cancer is discovered, symptom relief is a critical element of cancer care and treatment. Symptom management, palliative care, and supportive care are all terms used to describe this type of care. Make an appointment with your doctor to discuss any symptoms you’re having, especially any new or changing symptoms.
