There are a number of different types of cancer that affect the eyes, including: eye melanoma. squamous cell carcinoma, and lymphoma.
Also some chemotherapy drugs and targeted cancer drugs can make your eyes very dry and sore.
They might feel gritty, as though there is something in your eye. This is because the drugs cause a reaction on the inside of your eyelids. Or you may not be making enough tears.
