Sorry this is so long...The vision in my right eye suddenly decreased from 20/20 with my current glasses to 20/200 and can only be corrected to 20/80 with a new script. The optomatrist and ophthamologist could not find any eye disorder that would have caused this amount of change & will not write an new script until I see my neurologist. I see my neurologist for migraines and he does not consider this an emergency and I have to wait until my next appointment to see him. I should mention that I did slip and fall at a store a few weeks before the vision issue and sprained my neck, back and right hip. Should I continue to wait for my neurologist, see a neuro-ophthamologist or see another type of doctor? Thanks for your help!
Thank you for your quick response! Is this an emergency type visit or one that can wait? It is extremely difficult to get appoinments in my area due to the lack of neuro-ophthamologists and neurolgists nearby. The nearest neuro-ophthamologists are @50 miles away & most are scheduled out until April. I am an accountant & depend on my vision to work, so I cannot afford to lose my vision. Thank you for your advice.
Is there always a reason for a sudden uncorrectable loss of vision? I have now had a MRI and seen a neurologist (who was not interested). Just wanted to ask prior to seeing a neuro-opthamologist. Thank you!
