Recent eye exam followed by an OCT exam of the maculae revealed

Recent eye exam followed by an OCT exam of the maculae revealed "a little thickening in both eyes." Can you elaborate on what this might mean?
I am an 80 year old using Losartin, Carvedilol (for AFIB) and Warfarin (be cause of AFIB). There are a fdew other Rx meds cholesterol and prostate issues. Could there be a relationship between these meds and what was observed in the above test?

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.
"a little thickening" does not, unfortunately, tell me anything at all....
How many microns are in "a little"?
If you can upload your OCT print out I would be happy to read it for you.
Also, any clinical information you can give me would be helpful
Was this OCT done by an optometrist or an ophthalmologist? What did the doctor have to say?
