Abnormal eye movements


  • When looking for signs of a brain tumour, there are two main types of visual abnormality to be aware of: abnormal eye movements, and changes to vision, such as blurred or double vision.

  • Abnormal appearance or movements of the eye are important symptoms to look out for – for example a new squint (eyes looking in different directions), one eye is bulging, or flicking eyes.

Other visual symptoms that may be caused by a brain tumour include blurred or double vision, and a worsening in vision and eyesight – be particularly aware where these have occurred suddenly. If you're a teenager and you're concerned about your symptoms, it's best to get them checked out by your doctor or an ophthalmologist.
