Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I can help you today.
Do you know what your best corrected visual acuity is? You also said you might have high eye pressure. Do you have glaucoma? If so, do you know how much damage has been done to your field of vision?
yes my field of vision is constricted
no l am not sure
i am not sure what my visual acuity is all how much damage has occured
In the USA, the amount of remaining visual field is a part of determining if your are legally blind. It is possible to have 20/20 (perfect) straight ahead vision but yet have a very damaged visual field and be listed as "legally" blind in the USA
l am at the moment exsperincing blurred vision and told to stop using my symbol cane l cryed in town yesterday because people looked blured crossing roads l look and dont see
thank you for your help today do you think l should see my optican about this problem
No. You should try to skip the optician and see a different ophthalmologist. Try to bring copies of your clinical notes, visual fields etc for her to review and compare with the tests she will do.

I would just keep on using your symbol cane. What are they gonna do to you, spank you and take away your birthday? :o) If it helps, there should be no reason you can't use it to get around.
