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.
Hi where you able to go through the problem that I had mentioned
I've read your post and I'm sorry you have been suffering for so long.
It sounds like you have spent quite some time trying to get to the bottom of what is going on. I am sure that your previous doctors have thought of, and ruled out, all of the common and easily treatable conditions that could be causing your issues. Would you say this is a correct statement?
I think so
I was never able to explain to any doctor the way i explained it to you
I'm glad you were able to write it all down. You should print it out for future reference if needed.....
Well I think it might be time for you to take a very difficult, and bold, step to see if you can get some relief.
I was scared to make eye contact with any doctor
At this point I think the best thing for you to do would be to gather up copies of all your medical records and travel to a large University Teaching hospital. At an institution like that you could be evaluated and treated by a team of sub-specialists who are at the cutting edge of their respective fields. The best thing about these large teaching hospitals is that consultations are available with Professors and leaders in their field by just walking a few steps down the hall.
The Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota is an excellent example of just such a place as this. That being said there are many excellent teaching hospitals all across the USA and Canada and I am sure that there is one near you.
This is the best place for you to get in touch with super sub-specialists who can work with you even though you can make eye contact with them.
I know that it is going to take significant effort on your part, but I believe that going to one of the "Medical Mecca's" is your best chance to – finally -- get to the bottom of what is going on. You have been suffering for too long to continue like you are.
Does this make sense to you?
Well I live in vancouver it is not easy for me to go there and expensive. What do you think my problem is based on what i had said..
Your issues are too complex to diagnose over the internet using chat....I am sure you can understand the limitations I am under.....
I think going to a Vancouver, or other teaching institution, is your best -- and at this point -- only chance of getting your respect back and feeling better.
Maybe some government assistance is available....doesn't hurt to ask.
People are calling me names and thet think that i have gone mental the way i look at people. Is it some kind of nerve damage
Perhaps, but only a compete work up with the experts at a University are going to get to the bottom of what is going on at this point.
do i have a broken sphenoid bone or damaged sphenoid bone that it effects my eyes so much from the rock hitting
Your other doctors, from what you have posted, have been of no help...time to go to the top doctors....
How would i approach a university we have ubc here
That is impossible for me to say....it would require a physical exam and possibly a ct scan to say for sure.
You should be able to call and make an appointment. I would start with the internal medicine department as this type of doctor can then serve as your coordinator for all further super-sub-specialty care you would need.
Here in the USA anyone can call and get in to be seen.
Not sure how it works in Canada....
When it happened i didnt have a family doctor but now i do and i have not said anything to him about this. How should I explain it to him so He would beleive me and take necceasay stepes to heal me
Give him the post you gave to me and have him read it.
Also, you can print out my conversation and recommendations for his review.
ok thanks. Ill do that. I appreciate your time. Do you have any suggestions or reccomendations
Yes. Get a referral from your family doctor to the University. Make sure that your previous medical records are available for their review. I think that you will find that they will give you the help you have been looking for all these years, especially after that other doctor banned you from his clinic (which was not very nice at all......)
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.
