Sometimes yes: Sometimes yes....If the tumor were located in a part of the brain where its presence DID NOT cause sufficient increase in pressure of the cerebrospinal fluid to cause the optic nerves to reflect that pressure then, NO the ophthalmologist is not likely to see anything in the eye that makes anybody worried for a tumor,
