Hello

You need to make arrangements for an opthalmologist to see you.

This can be done in the hospital, at an ER, or in an office.

I would talk to your primary care about this.

If you are in a nursing home, it should be possible there as well.

OK

First of all, we do not diagnose the problem or treat on the site.

As a diabetic, this might be caused by diabetic retinopathy

Detached retinas

Glaucoma

Other problem.

You need the exam and testing for all.

This is a back and forth format....I invited you back to ask more and clarify as needfed.

Let me know if you have further information or questions.
