Doctor DanB :

Hello and thanks for your question. Are you available to chat?

Customer: Yes
Doctor DanB :

Do you have diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or heart disease?

Customer: Yes
Doctor DanB :

Which ones?

Customer: not that has ever been diagnosed...had CBC done a yr ago and everything was fine. Work out hard three times a week and eat pretty healthy
Customer: Sorry may have replied yes when it should have been no...Oopsy Daisy
Customer: U should know had RK surgery about 25 yrs ago
Doctor DanB :

I'm sorry; I had to step away from my desk for a few minutes, but I'm back.

Doctor DanB :

Okay, so knowing that you don't have any of those medical problems, the fact that your blood vessels are more curvy than straight likely represents just an anatomical variation (like some people are short vs tall, light vs dark, etc...) and not something pathological.

Customer: R u sure this is not a sign of something more serious ? help Dr. Dan 👀
Doctor DanB :

Well, unfortunately without personally examining you myself, I can't say that for sure. But knowing that tortuous blood vessels are usually only a problem in persons who have systemic medical problems like high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol, or heart disease, I would suspect that this isn't a sign of some impending eye problem. That being said, if you haven't had a recent checkup and physical with your physician, that would be the best thing to do right now, just to make sure that any risk factors you may have for these diseases could be managed. Does that make sense?

Customer: Yes u Rock!!!
Doctor DanB :

Great. Do you have any other concerns or questions about this topic?
