Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
I am a retina surgeon. Can you tell me what type of doctor is going to treat her for vein occlusion? Is it an ophthalmologist, a retina specialist, an optometrist etc?
And what treatment is the doctor suggesting that requires a "test reaction" to steroid eye drops? Also, how long is this test supposed to run?
I would have to guess that the doctor is planning on injecting steroids either around, behind or inside your mothers eye.......is this correct?
Also, do you know if she has a central retinal vein occlusion or a branch vein occlusion?
Does she have any medical problems or take any medication?
I see that you are offline. I'll switch over to the Q&A system. This system works a lot like 'text messaging' but an email is sent to each of us anytime something is posted to this thread. We can continue to work on your question there..... :)
