Expert:  Dr. Rick replied 9 months ago.

I am a retina specialist.

What is your current best visual acuity in each eye while wearing your best glasses?

Has this changed recently?

Have you had any eye surgery in the past?

What about your retina was the doctor concerned about?

Is this eye doctor an optometrist (OD) or an ophthalmologist (MD, Does surgery)?

Do you have any other medical problems or take any medications?
