No vision issues at school, some concerns about reading. I thought part of the profile read that you are rad onc, is that correct? I was expecting ophtho or peds:)
Thanks,
Stephanie
Pediatrician: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 2 years ago

the question was posted in pediatrics for 1 hour and no doctors took the question

that is why it was moved into a general medicine category.

that is good no issues at school.

you didn't answer when she sees these colored blotches.

It can be any time, no associated symptoms. Not worse in the morning or end of the day.I am a physician as well, internal med, so was hoping for an opinion beyond what I would know myself, hence the questions about specialty.
Pediatrician: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 2 years ago

well, I am happy to opt out

but you might be waiting for a pediatrician or an opthalmologist.

Hello,

Sorry about this issue.If the problem is on both sides, there is some central nervous issue of visual cortex and MRI brain may help. If only one sided, there may be retinal vessel issue, so MRI or ultrasound may help. This of course after direct ophthalmoscopy.

Good luck to her.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
