Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm Dr. Rick and I have two decades of ophthalmology experience. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
That is a very good question and, in truth, there is nothing special to say to the doctor.
Just tell the ophthalmologist exactly what you have told me. Also, make sure to bring your medication list with you and be ready to review your past medical history in as much detail as possible.
You neurologist is sending you to the ophthalmologist so that he can be sure that the problem does not lie with your eyeglass Rx, your eyes, or your optical system. After he is assured that this is the case he will proceed to do his neurological workup.
But, from what you have posted, I would bet that this will not end up being primarily an ocular issue....but it has to be ruled out. :(
Dose this make sense to you?
