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. I am a retina specialist.
Were you told this by an optometrist or an ophthalmologist (eye MD)?
Do you wear glasses or contacts? If so, do you know what your Rx is?
Do you have any visual problems at all?
Do you have any medical problems or take any medication?
Glasses for 95% of he time - contacts on odd occasion.
no medical/visual issues
ok. Did you see the other questions I posted?
RX - No idea sorry
and no medication
ok. Optometrist, no visual problems, wear glasses and you're healthy.
Well, not to be mean or anything but, in my two decades of practice as a retina surgeon, I've learned not to get very excited when optometrists find vague changes in the macula of a symptom free, perfectly healthy 29 year old patient.
99% of the time it is nothing other then a lack of training and understanding that leads them to be concerned .....
I'm not sure how to phrase that in a PC way :(
good to hear!
