Eye Lesion
I recently visited an optometrist and was told that I have a very large flat lesion on the back of my left eye.  I have good vision, just a mild convergence problem.  Oh, and also found out I have a color defeciency which I never knew about.  He said the lesion is something he will just watch and next year he will check it to make sure it hasn't changed.  Should I visit an opthamologist?  What would cause a lesion?  The last time I had my eyes checked was probably 5 years ago and that doctor didn't mention this issue.  Thanks!

Read up on the difference in training and skill between a MD physician ophthalmologist and a non-MD optometrist. In my opinion you should have been referred to an Eye MD.  Consider losing the optom and see an Eye MD. Find one near you at www.aao.org
