Customer Question

Would like to get doctor's answer to my question. I just went to have my eyes checked and my eye doctor found a dark spot inside my eye--way in the back. Is this serious?
JA: When was the last time you had your eyes checked? In general, how has your vision been lately?
Customer: I just had my eye checked a week ago. And this is when he found the spot. I have regular eye check ups yearly. And last week I was due for a check up. The doctor then told me I had a spot in my eye and I am concerned because I heard that there is such a thing as eye cancer. So I worry.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: My mother died of cancer.
