Customer Question
There is a gray...

There is a gray spot in my vision of the right eye. Ordinarily, it would be called Macular Degeneration. But my regular eye doc and a specialist both agree it isn't. A specialized x-ray of the etina shows that the retina edges just get seem to dwindle to nothing on one side and resume their dimension on the other side of the spot. I have trouble seeing at very low lights but no problems in the daytime. Could you give me some advise as to what this might be. Neither doc has any idea what has caused this.

Doctor's Assistant: When was the last time you had your eyes checked? In general, how has your vision been lately?

About 6 months ago. I have seen this a bit more than I did before my last appointment but I think I'm just more curious about this and it may not be worsening.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Diabetes Type 2
