Thank you so much for replying!
As far as being dietetic that is not the case - I am tankful for that, and I also had my blood work and blood pressure taken at my last check up (like 2 weeks ago) and all was good.
I contacted my doctors office saying that they are only getting worse and get sore so I didn't feel comfortable waiting for 5 months. She responded saying she would speak with the doc (the recp) and get back to me - since then I have sent 2 more emails saying I hate to be impatient but I want some options. I even sent them pictures of my eyes to show the other doc im trying to get an appointment with. and still no word. its been about a week. I realize they are busy but some kind of response would be appreciated - i work 9-5 with 2 jobs 7 days a week so taking time off for things is difficult - If it was for the eye specialist it would be in a heart beat but I don't want to go back to my doc just for other options.. when she told me they would respond.
I tried calling local optometrist offices yesterday to see if someone could give me 2 min of their time to know if I should worry / keep trying to see someone sooner or if the 5 month wait is ok. All i was told is i need to go in for a complete exam and of course thats just $$ i dont have to spend. So i may have some leads to getting into an optimoligist sooner than oct with my referral, but still no idea what it could even be!
I still cant find anything that looks or sounds like what im experiencing and when my doctor used the word 'degenerative' that didnt help my state of mind. I am going to do alot more research into the 'blue eye' situation you mentioned to see if that could be more like it.
I wish I could say my vision hasn't been affected yet but 2 days ago it became blurry when I looked down or to the sides for like 10 min - and that never happens to me.
I do have allergies but haven't had a bad reaction lately or scratch - I have been SUPER careful with my eye for the last month to avoid making the situation worse.
I hope I don't sound too frantic by any means im just frustrated that I have gone this long with no start of an answer.
I really appreciate the feedback so far and hope to receive more help - I have already gotten more replies here then anywhere else! im glad i got this out here. Thanks again!!!
