I have been experiencing blurriness that is worse on some days than others. Sometimes the line of my lower eyelid is red and the veins of the eye seem more irritated than usual. I have migraines and experience a lot of sensory symptoms more so than visual auras. During one of my last spells, it felt like my eyes were skittering when I tried to concentrate when a coworker asked me questions about a job. I also have an atypical 11 x 7 x 5 mm pineal gland cyst. Should I see an opthamologist or an optometrist for a comprehensive eye exam? Are there any tests that I should have performed? My vision insurance only seems to cover optometrists or laser eye doctors whose websites don't have comprehensive exams listed.
If you have medical insurance, then you can see a Medical Doctor. Ophthalmologists are Medical Doctors. You may have "top of the basilar syndrome" which can be associated with benign Pinealomas. Go to someone with experience in neuro.
