A Spoiled Retirement?
The optometrist instructed me to undergo and pay for an OCT test to determine what an ophthalmologist could help with. The technology used in the OCT camera was old and only frightened me with the lack of information it gave the optometrist.
Latest technology for diagnosis
At the specialist's practice, the technology was the very latest and helped with the diagnosis. Yes, MD but I don't suffer from diabetes or allergies. Now my diagnosis includes injections into my eye or maybe eyes...one at a time.
Two prescribed so far....then a re-evaluation.
Don't panic, or plan for the worst as I did - wait for the specialist - their technology and knowledge/experience is the help you require. Good luck to all!
