Symptoms of retinoblastoma may include:
- pupil (the black part of the eye in the middle) that appears white instead of red when a light is shone into it (e.g. in a photograph)
- red or painful eye
- larger than usual eyeball
- cloudiness in the iris (the coloured part of the eye) and the pupil
- eyes that seem to be looking in different directions (also called 'lazy eye').
Note about symptoms
Many conditions – including common childhood infections – can cause these symptoms, not just retinoblastoma. If your child has any of these symptoms and you are concerned, talk to your child’s doctor.
