Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
are you available to chat?
If you are interested in having new glasses made go to the optometrist. If you need to know more about the pigment in your eyes, go to an ophthalmologist or a retina specialist.
What are you worried about? The pigment or the glasses change?
no i am just worried if my eye sight has worsend within 6 months
Ok. Well, to best understand why your glasses Rx has changed so much your opometrist might want to do your refraction (which is better, one or two?) twice. The first time without drops (dry refraction) and the second time with drops (wet refraction). By comparing the results from these two tests she will be able to see if you have "hidden hyperopia". This can be common in far sighted folks and, if it is present in any significant amount, can start to be a bother as you get older.
If this is indeed what is going on in your case it is nothing to be worried about. Does this make sense to you?
i went to a opt and she told there is a possibility i can go blind due to something at the back of the eye and the she sent me to a opth and she said it's just needs to be monitored i just want to see if my eyes have worsend in 6 months
That is why optometrists should never look in the back of the eye.....they wouldn't know significant ocular pathology if it reached up and bit them. I'm sorry she scared you like that.
If the ophthalmologist said you don't need to be worried about the pigment it is probably an retinal nevi....think of it as a birth mark inside your eye. Nothing to worry about
actually after i heard that i went to see my gyno about another issue she told me i am not my usual self then she told me to get a second opion got love specialist no some much more
I'm sure the ophthalmologist would be happy to take over your complete eye care. She could do the wet/dry refraction noted above and let you know exactly what is going on with the prescription change. No need to go back and forth from an optometrist and someone who actually knows what is going on inside an eyeball.
sorry they know so much more
That is why they went to medical school and, then at least 4 more years of advanced training....
the optometrist actually told me that i have retinla pigmentosa
An optometrist has no idea what RP is......time to dump this one.
I do retina all day long and even I don't consider myself an RP expert
yeah because i do get scared and when she said that i may go blind my jaw dropped and went all emotional but thank you help
i was almost like she told me i was dying
My pleasure. I'm sorry you were put thought all that trauma for no good reason.
my pleasure. Is there anything else I can help with today?
no that's all great help
Have a great day!
sorry if i didn't make sense
You did fine. I understood what you were getting at.
