Doctor DanB : Hello and thanks for your question. Are you available to chat?
Customer:

yes

Doctor DanB : Has he seen his retinal specialist?
Customer:

yes, he has no clue. My retina specialist is half way to God and he has no clue either.

Customer:

I think my dads diet is not very good.

Doctor DanB : Has he had a laser procedure done to his lens implants after cataract surgery?
Customer:

no, he had scalpel cataract procedure around 1985ish. nothing else since. he has a history of herpes in 1 eye.

Customer:

and again- his vision is clear except when it is yellow.

Doctor DanB : I think he needs to see a comprehensive ophthalmologist who can check for cloudy membranes behind his lens implants or corneal edema which could result from herpetic infections. If this doesn't prove a cause then I recommend getting a second retinal opinion given your distrust of his current retinal specialist. Does that make sense?
Customer:

do you think the edema could cause the intermitent nature? he says he sees yellow up to 75% of the time, now.

Doctor DanB : Yes, I do.
Customer:

Thank you.

Doctor DanB : You're welcome. Do you have any other concerns or questions about this topic?     
Customer:

not at this time. I am excited that research and technology are advancing at such an amazing pace. I believe ALL eye diseases will be cured within 20 years.
