Customer Question
I have a bulging...

I have a bulging that shows up with extensive tests and am scheduled to see a "retina"specialist. What is this called ? And what can I expect to be done ?

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

Yes I have seen my optometrist and he said to go to the specialist today as we don't know how long it has been there. Meds taken are just for for my back

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

I had cata acts removed some years ago
