What do you think about this?
can a tumor pressing on your eye from above cause the effected eye to have a smaller pupil than the other one,  and/or excessive mucus production resulting in blurry vision,   and/or a stiff feeling when moving the eyes left and right?

the vast majority of people with eye and vision symptoms DO NOT have a tumor.

that being said....

yes, tumors can create anisocoria (different pupil sizes).  usualy a tumor creates a LARGER pupil, not a smaller one.

tumors do not cause excessive mucus.

tumors do not cause 'stiff' feeling during eye movement.
