My wife is 45 years old . She is wearing spectacles for reading for the last 2 years and doesnot have any problem in vision.(She is Type 2 diabetic but with food control it is in normal level)
Six month ago during routine check,it was informed by eye specialist that there are some weak points in the retina and to be checked after six months again.
Now ,yeterdat we have consulted a retina specialist and he confirmed that there are weak points in the retinas of both eyes and LASER treatment is to be done.
Is this necessary to conduct this laser treatment now since she is not having any vision problems now
Awaiting for your reply.
Some weak spots require treatment and some don't. Also experts do not always agree on which need treated and which do not. You can either accept the retina recommendation and have RX or you can get a third opinion.
