spots noted on Optomap
I recently had an optomap done and the doctor noticed two tiny dots (he said they were something blood clots, or vessels or something) and recommended that I get a blood glucose test to rule out diabetes. I am 27 and have no symptoms of diabetes. However I later remember that I had a slight injury to that same eye (I got elbowed and my glasses got pushed into eye resulting in a black eye). My eyes have also been itchy lately, and even thought I know I shouldn't, I have been rubbing them.  Could the injury and/or the rubbing have caused these spots. I bruise very easily.

Sometimes these optomaps are overused by commercial opticians and non-MD optometrists. If you saw a non-MD, non-physician optometrist I suggest you get in to see a MD ophthalmologist before spending a fortune on tests.

If you did see an Eye MD call and ask him/her that question.
