My near vision has deteriorated recently and I've had to start wearing glasses to read. During the eye exam the optician said I had a brown patch on the back of my eye and suggested I make an appointment at the eye hospital. I've done this but it's not until May 09. Since wearing glasses I've noticed my long distance vision in the eye with the dark patch is getting worse. My partner is a doctor and although she's not examined my eye, seems to think I should try bring my appointment forward... asap... but won't tell me why.
I'm not worried about this development just curious as to wether I should be or not..... any suggestions as to what it may be... remember its inside the eye on the back of it.
I also was told there is a dark spot on the back of my eyeball and the doctors concern with it was it was on top of a vein, and he too wants me
to get a a specicalist to look at it , its that the same thing you are talking about
