In brief: The Cav. Sinus

Is near many important structuers (pituitary, optic chiasm) and many cranial nerves controlling eye function and motion pass through it.
It is eye movement issues that are the most troubling. Pain is not usual a key factor, and usually can be controlled with meds and treatment.

It really depends on each person, the size and location of the tumor, and other factors.
