Leer en Español: Linfoma ocular: síntomas y riesgos

Written By: Kierstan Boyd Shared from AAO.org

The most common symptoms for eye lymphoma include:

  • blurry vision
  • decrease or loss of vision
  • floaters (seeing small dots or lines in your field of vision)
  • redness or swelling in the eye
  • being extra sensitive to light
  • eye pain (though this is rare)

Lymphoma usually affects both eyes, though the symptoms may be more obvious in one eye.

Who is at risk for eye lymphoma?

People at risk for getting eye lymphoma include those who:

  • have rheumatoid arthritis or other autoimmune diseases
  • have certain medical problems that affect their immune system
  • have AIDS (acquired immunodeficiency syndrome)
  • are taking certain medications to prevent the body from rejecting a transplanted organ

People without any of these risk factors can still develop eye lymphoma.
