uveitis
i think im being a hypocondriac.  i have a bunch of floaters and my eyes are alittle red.  i had an eye exam the other day and the doctor said my eyes were perfect.  from my research on line i think ive made myself beleive i have Uveitis.  if he said my eyes were perfect with no problems did he look for diseases like that?  he would have noticed if something was wrong like uveitis right?? he said my eyes looked just how a 27 year olds eyes should look.  

he wouldnt have missed it right?  

just alittle worried.
thanks

Had the "eye doctor" been to medical school. Did he/she have a MD degree after their name. Did he/she provide comprehensive complete medical and surgical eye care?

If so the likelihood of missing uveitis is very low. If you did not see a MD and saw a non-MD, non-physician, limited eye care providing optometrist then you may have cause for concern. in that case find an Eye MD at www.aao.org and get in for a real exam.

Its not where he went to school but how he/she makes your feel and their reputation in the commmunity among fellow MDs and patients.

Hi:  This is barby; i would get a second opinion from another doctor; i did i trust my surgeon but it does not hurt to go to another doctor for a second or even third opinion; it is your right.  Hope you get better
