Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
As a retina surgeon I can tell you that, depending on the degree of visual distortion from your macular pucker it can very easily cause the symptoms you are having.
The good news? I very, very, very much doubt that you have a brain tumor from what you have posted.
Are you available to chat?
One reason you might be using the reading glasses for getting around is that you may have macular edema in addition to your macular pucker.
I suggest you consult with an ophthalmologist or, possibly a retina specialist.
Is there anything else you would like to discuss at this point or have all your questions been answered to your satisfaction?
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
We have been experiencing problems with the chat system for the last few days. Our engineers are working on it. However, 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..... :)
I went to Doctor Walker in Fort Myers Florida , he said there is a pucker and the fluid is a little cloudy but an operation wouldnt correct my perception problem . Again it is more obvious in the bright light then in the house or at night that makes me think it is the pucker. Do you think I should get the operation and hope thats it or continue with the problem that doesnt seem to be getting worse it just bothers me more and maybe it would be better to do this at 62 instead of waiting.
