Re: Now I am worried
I encourage you to march right in and get that eye test done at the specialist. Do not let anything (especially you) stop you.
Your eyes do give your doctor a great view of other things going on in your body. All the specialist will do is take a look with more advanced machinery. It is painless, and no worse than a regular eye exam. Skipping this could skip your doctors chance to catch something very small, which could next become something bigger.
Do you have a friend you could bring along for moral support? I always like to do that.
Get it done and learn whatever he has to tell you, that is much better than the anxiety caused by the unknown.
I have my own experience with great damage to my eyes, after years of impossible to control blood pressure. I ended up having strokes on my retinas, as well as on my brain. I am not implying any of that for you, as you do not have HBP, that was my thing....but I learned how much the doctor can see through our eyes, and I now keep 3 month appointments with my eye doctor for close follow up. I have regained much of my vision, and am doing great now. Please get yourself in there, and let me know what happens, I am very interested in what you find out...
