What are the symptoms of intraocular melanoma?

Dr. Jeanne Morrison, PhD
Family Practitioner

Symptoms of intraocular melanoma may vary depending on the person and depending on the part of the eye that's affected. Sometimes, there may be no noticeable symptoms at all. In other cases, people with intraocular will experience some kind of change in vision such as blurriness, dark spots, or "floaters." Other symptoms may include a dark spot on the iris or a change of the pupil's shape.
