  • I am an Optician and saw your post. The best to do is to have a referral from your family doctor to a specialist. Not an Optometrist. The doctor will dilate your pupils with eye drops and look in to the back of the eye system. Your age is vital information too. Over 50 year olds need an annual examination because eye health drops as our eyes age. Changes in vision occur from the age of 40 even if you have never worn glasses evenually we all need help to see at the differnt distances. Make a list of what your symtoms are plus medications and current medical history. Also is there Glacoma or any other eye issues in your family. List ,if any too.Lastly, if you have headaches, sudden vision loss or pain this is a reason to act now and see your doctor. Good luck

  • thanks for your kind concern, friend. i would like to tell you that my eye-sight has suffered a great loss of vision these days and I belong to a family that has a history of "Cataract". i, too, have been operated for the same problem some years before. and also that I do suffer sometimes a piercing pain in my head. and also I have to wear glassess all the time. Freinds please help me as in this age (i am 65 years old) it will be of great difficulty with me if i loose my eye-sight. no doctor could clearly diagnose the actual cause of the same. i have taken a appointment with a doctor for an CT scan may be it helps. Hoping for the solution from all my friends on this site.
