Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Thank you so much for your attention to my question. Yes, it must be amsler grid. This is my reason for the question. My daughter, Faith is 11 y.o. She has been complaining of eye problems for the last month or so. Her sx's are blurry words when reading either the chalkboard or reading from her textbooks, eye "pain", headache. So, I had her see an optometrist last week. His findings were that she had "healthy eyes" however he wanted me to follow up with our family doctor regarding his findings. He wanted to r/o compression tumor of the retina? My family doctor received his report, but she really didn't understand what the optometrist's concerns were. She said something about "positive amsler grid" in his report but didn't really know what that meant. So, she said I should follow up with an opthalmologist to further investigate my daughter's symptoms. So, that is why I found this website and thought maybe I should ask a professional. Just found this info out today. Any suggestions? Should I be concerned? -Tara-
