Seen my Optho yesterday and I was told that I have to see a Retinal Specialist due to enlarged blood vessels in my eyes. My question is what is the cause of the condition? Does it have a name for enlarged vessels in the eyes and how soon should I see the Retinal Specialist?
ah, could be migraines. thats a distinct possibility.
there is no diagnosis or condition that has a name for "engorged blood vessels". if you do have engorged blood vessels, its a side effect or a sign of some OTHER problem. there is no "engorged retinal blood vessel disease".
