Seroquel/Quetiapine Macular Problems

I have what my eye doctor called pigment mottling and may be an indication of future macular degeneration. Is there any evidence of Seroquel (Quetiapine) causing macular degeneration or any retinal problems? I do know there is evidence of it causing cataracts.

Pigment mottling is very non-specific and especially in individuals over 50 is overwhelmingly due to age. It need not lead to macular degeneration. You will have to do a literature search on Seroquel.

I haven't been able to find anything on Seroquel and regarding my issue. Does my being 37 years old sound bizarre to have pigment mottling? My eye doctor only asked me if I had ever looked directly into an eclipse (which I have not). I have no idea how this came up and macular problems are not in my family that I know of.

It would depend on what your central vision is, and what your macula looked like a year or two ago. I see many "young" people in their 30's that have pigmentary mottling without it ever getting worse.
