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. Was the doctor who examined your son an optometerist or an ophthalmologist (eye MD)?
Does your son have any visual complaints?
Was his vision and the remainder of his exam normal today?
The DR was not an eye md. My son has not been complianing at all but a prescreening by the lions club said he needed an eye exam so he went today. Dr says he is farsighted and has astigmatism. He was fitted for glasses today.
From what you have told me I do not think you have anything to worry about. It seems that this optometrist, who is not an MD, has purchased a camera that gives him very pretty pictures of the retina....but he is not sure what the retina really is.....
I believe that what the optometrist was seeing is a photographic artifact. This is of no concern.
oh thank you so much. God bless you for being on this site to help people like me.
My pleasure. I'm glad I could help you this evening. Take care.
