My dad, 75, has been to 2 different opthomologists. While there, going through the procedure to determine his perscription, the haze over his eye didn't affect his vision. Whenever he got his glasses, the haze on his eye is there and it makes it difficult for him to read. He says the words on the pages will run together, fade out and even flip. One doctor told him he had diabetes, however, his family doctor has never told him that. It's very frustrating for him. Any advice or suggestions???
At his age it is almost inevitable that he has cataracts. That often makes it difficult to get a pair of glasses that make the person see as well as they would like. Also the pupils are dilated for eye exams by Eye MD ophthalmologists and that often helps the person see around the caract while in the office and having the testing.
See a well respected eye surgeon and discuss if there are cataracts that need removing.
