I would greatly appreciate it, if you could please tell me if a MRI scan, shows up all eye diseases. I have one coming up soon (for head pain), but have since started to develop some visual problems too. I had my eyes dilated on the 4th June by a eye surgeon, to get a hole in the retin checked, and they were healthy on that occasion. I was just wondering if I should go back to my eye specialist and have then dilated again, after the MRI.
I would recommend that you see an eyeMD for your head pain and visual problems that you having now. Even though you have previously had a retinal examination, they may be able to assist you in discerning a diagnosis.
