thinning of eye nerves
hgt
The nerves in back of both of my eyes are thinning.apparently I have healthy eyes, no glaucoma,no pressure, my eyes have been very tired the right eye more than the left eye, no headaches, my vision has not changed much since my last checkup 14 months ago, only the thinning of  nerves. As soon as I come home I take off my glasses.  My eyes are dry so I now use drops, I am also getting new glasses.  My optometrist wants to wait 4 months and repeat the test  where you see flashing lights and have to push a button when you see one. should I see a neurologist or wait the 4 months?

1. You should be under the care of an Eye MD ophthalmologist physician. Find one at www.aao.org or ask your personal MD to recommend one. In my opinion an optometrist in not what you need.
2. If its been 14 months since your last exam you are WAY late on appropriate testing.
3. You likely need central corneal thickness measurement, stereo optic nerve photos, optic nerve OCT, visual field, gonioscopy and if anything suspicious evaluated each 6 months.
