Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
Has she been examined by an ophthalmologist?
What eye drops is she using?
yes twice, some sort of steroid.
When was she last examined and how has her vision done since that appointment/
week ago, vision has decreased.
Is the drop called Pred Forte 1%
going to dbl check.. brb
and there should also be a drop with a red top....
tobramycin-dexameth ophth susp
yes and told to use eye drops for dryness
OK. Well....something is not making sense here. This eye doctor, she is an MD....does cataract surgery etc, correct?
not 100% sure, we have no insurance.. went and seen an optometrist, whom was listed local and cheap.
That makes more sense.....this issue is beyond the ability of an optometrist to deal with.
If, indeed, your wife has shingles in her eye, the treatment she is getting does not make sense at all.......
I would get her in to see an ophthalmologist today. Make sure this person is an MD and does eye surgery......
local and cheap is not the best person to use when it comes to your eyes......
Does this make sense to you?
I see that you are typing and that could mean a couple of things: 1. you are actually typing or, 2, the chat system has frozen up. I'll give it a few more minutes and if I've not seen anything from you I'll switch over to the Q&A system. That system works a lot like 'text messaging' but, unlike the chat system, it almost never freezes up. We can continue to work on your question there. :o)
I hope this information was helpful for you. But I do work for tips so I want to make sure you are happy with me before rating me. If you have another question on this or a related issue feel free to fire away. And please let me know if the rating system gives you any troubles. Thanks in advance, Dr. Rick MD FACS
sorry was typing a lot to respond.. I am currently unemployed. have already spent most of the rent money to see three Dr's .. Two trips to eye doc, one to an MD here in town.. spending more money for your opinion. i am ignorant to what needs to be done for her.... do you have any recommendations for someone certified in the area of Ann Arbor Mich.?
I have done more research, the eye doc is an MD . And does cataract surgery.. which concerns me.. what can i do or ask to see if my wife is getting the correct treatment???????? keeping in mind she is claiming it feels like there is something on the back of her eye ( moved from the front to back) and vision is blurry and becoming distorted..
i have set up an appointment with another eye MD, that is why i asked the question ... As it is to my wife and myself her vision is very important to us.. I am just trying to make sure she is getting the RIGHT care. you feel me on this?
well i realize with out you seeing her, an accurate diagnoses was and is unrealistic.. i thought i had narrowed it down enough for you to give me a few things to look for while this MD was examining her.. I guess all i can do is after her exam is ask you if this seems like a joke of an MD as well... this one is costing me three times the amount of the first one.... (UGH) but its important! just wish you could have been more helpful.. Are you going to be reachable around 3pm est. today to revisit this issue?
