I had an eye exam a couple of weeks ago and they took pictures of my eyes
they sent them to me in an email with no analysis, so i looked at them and got worried because i can see (from what i saw on google) silver wires going down the center of some not all of the veins and arteries(i cant tell the difference from the picture if there viens or arteries).

also around the veins affected there is whitening on the retina.

and there is a cresent shape whitening above and to the right of the fovea.

i was wondering if this might be the flash of the camera but i saw on google that this may be due to high cholestorol and can be treated with high amounts of vitamin C?

what do you think and i can post the images up if it is nessesary.

thanks alot hope you can help
