It can be noticed inside of the eyelids as well as membrane surrounding the white area of this organ. The tumor of this type won’t be seen with the naked eye – a patient can only feel it. A regular activity like blinking becomes a challenge when such swelling occurs. Except for the feeling of having tired eyes and poor vision, the person believes there is a foreign body in the eye, causing such discomfort.
