I don't think this question is eye doctor material. It's not retinal detachment or anything like that

could it be med related?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
I'm not sure, but with that ridiculous passel of meds, anything is possible. I started the Ativan/Wellbutrin 2 weeks ago, to replace the klonipin I had been taking for almost 10 years

Still waiting for a proper response, rather than a restate based on the details of information
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 5 months ago.

I'm saying it is a cause for your symptoms

Also wellbutrin increases anxiety which is probably playing a role

Customer: replied 5 months ago.
You're saying 'what' specifically is a cause for my symptoms? And, Wellbutrin is used to treat anxiety
