pls reply to above query as my daughter age 18 also has very very thin retina and we are not sure to do laser or not? She is assymptomatic , high myopic ( L- -4.25 , R - -2.5).
Your advise will help us to decide what to do next or wait till she reports flashes.
First of all the retina is very thin in every person we're talking about something thinner than a piece of paper. Second most thinner than normal spots in the retina are not dangerous and many are even normal. Only the Eye MD that looks in the eye can quantitate what he/she is calling unusual. Thus all of you will need to get this information from your Eye MD ophthalmologist. If you are not seeing an Eye Md and seeing a non physician optometrist I would suggest you see an Eye MD
