Hi, I'm 28 and I visited my optometrist for a routine visit on Friday. The doctor was concerned with my drusen, which he had said I have about three years ago. He did a couple tests and said I had poor results for my peripheral vision. He also said that my drusen was elevated more than he would like it to be, so he has scheduled an appointment for me to see an eyecare specialist later this month. He asked if I was having any bad headaches or vomiting, and I told him no. He said it was likely nothing to worry about.
However, I completely forgot to tell him that I was in a car accident just over 2 months ago which totaled both cars. I had some slight headaches for about a week which faded, so I wasn't concerned, but now I am thinking this may have more to do with my problem. I'm honestly a bit worried and his office isn't open for the weekend for me to tell him this for another full day.
So is the trauma a likely cause of all this? I know I should have said something to him, but honestly I think I panicked when he started talking about a specialist and the drusen.
