Customer Question
I have had a...

I have had a small black circle filled with the color yellow in my left eye for awhile. Sometimes it looks like there is a black cross in the center. My vision seems a little blurrier in that eye also since this started. Is this something that should be checked out or can it wait until my routine appointment in February or MArch?

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Have you been having any headaches?

Probably a couple of months. Some headaches, not daily. Mostly feel centered around my eyes and sinuses

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

My A1C runs 6.2 all the time, My aunt had a history of glaucoma, possibly my mother also but she has demential and can't really tell me.

these visual changes could be nothing or could be a problem with your retina

you should see an eye doctor sooner than february for an eye exam and retina examination.

do you have an eye doctor you can see?

best to see an ophthalmologist MD eye doctor who can do a pupil dilation and retina examination to be sure.
