Hi. My name is***** and I am online and available to help you today. Thank you for your patience.

I am an ophthalmologist

Question and answer is just one of the services I offer. I can also provide you with additional services, such as live telephone or skype consultation, at a small additional cost. Let me know if you are interested.

This is most likely because the doctor who though there was bleeding in the back of your eye was mistaken. The ophthalmologist, who is the expert on eye issues, most likely did not see any bleeding and what ever abnormalities might have been present did not require treatment.

I would hope, however, that the ophthalmologist would want to see you back in her office again within the next 12 months

Concerning your other eye, from what you have posted, it is difficult to say with any certainty what is going on. That being said there are many eye issues that reach a point where more surgery or aggressive intervention are not indicated.

Does this make sense to you?

Don't forget to mash the positive feedback button for me...the one labeled "excellent" is the most fun to push by far ;)

It's safe for you to press the positive feedback button now if you so desire. And, never fear, even after you press that button I don't go up in a puff of smoke -- I'll still be right here to continue helping you, but, as I do work for tips, I want to make sure you are happy before rating me.
