Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
Do you know what drops they used to help dilate his eyes?
No he is just a friend and he doesn't see so I am trying to help.
I can findout for you
Ok. He is lucky to have a friend like you. It's really not that important that we have the names of his drops.
He is healthy, but eyesight keeps him at home all the time
To cause his vision to drop to the level of seeing only shapes there has to be something else going on other then his pupils being small.
I would think so, but he has almost no medical problems, slight BP elevation but he takes meds for that
The list of things that can do this in a person his age is large and varied. One of the most common is cataracts, which can also contribute to eye pressure going up with chronic pupil dilation.
He has no cataracts.
Is there a good specialists in Ohio as that is where we live
also if he was diagnosed with an optic nerve problem there should have been a fairly extensive workup done to try and find treatable causes that would damage both his optic nerves
Are you interested in a University program or a general ophthalmologist?
And where in Ohio are you?
That was all done probably 5 yrs ago I do not know about that.Just anyone who might help him. He lives near Columbus , Ohio
Ok, let me check
ok thank you
Well, you are close to OSU Department of ophahlmology Havener Eye Institute at 915 Olentangy River Road(NNN) NNN-NNNN I know of the Chairman, Dr. Thomas Mauger. You friend would get Top Notch care there
They would leave no stone unturned in a search to improve his vision.
Thank you very much. I will get the information to him.
You may have to take him to the appointment as his vision is so poor.
