Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
I got an email that you had answered my question but I don
don't see an answer
did the optometrist put a "adjustable ruler with prisms" (hertel exophthalmometer) across your nose/eyes to measure how much your eyes may differ in the amount that they stick out?
Can you see my responses?
did you see my question?
I answered no to your question about the adjustable ruler....
Well, that is the difference between an optometrist and an ophthalmologist. Without using that specific instrument there is, truly, no way to tell if one eye is sticking out more then the other. Also, while I don't think that you have anything to worry about a "complete, dilated eye exam" by an optometrist really, in my opinion, does very little to rule out any pathology that may be present.
If the chat system is not allowing you to see my responses we can switch to Q&A format. This a a bit slower but works well. I'm sorry about the technical problems we seem to be having.
I think I would need a referral for that
If I don't hear from you soon I will switch to Q&A and we can continue there...
I just sent a response
are you not able to see it ?
It's not working....let's go to Q&A. See you there.....just type the same way, only an email will be sent between posts.....
