No, but she tested my eyes. You think I should go to an Ophthamologist? They would see something different? I guess I didn't know there was that much of a difference between the two doctors.
Yes there is as the opthalmoogist will be ruling out pathology including more obscure problems such as macular dysfunction and optic nerve deficits, more sophisticated organic analysis.

If nothing shows up, and nothing shows up on a good neuro exam by your doctor, also labs should be checked if not done already to rule out diabetes and thyroid problems.

If nothing turns up then it is an optometric problem.
good luck
