When I close my right eye, straight lines appear bent or curved in my right eye. When I close my left eye eye, straight lines appear bent or curved in the opposite direction. My opthamologist says I do not have macular degeneration. He dilated my eyes and said there was nothing pressing on the optic nerve. He states he believe it is caused from my astygmatism. It seems odd to me that the lines appear to mirror each other, but in in opposite directions. He did not send me to a retina specialist. I do not have frequent headaches. I am severely near-sighted and am a 49 year old female. I have a lot of floaters.
I still have anxiety about my symptoms, but i don't know what to pursue next. Should I see a retina specialist,a neurologist or other?
