i recently had my eyes examined at to my horror i found out that my sight has deteriorated by 3 steps in each eye within a 18 month period. The eye doctor who did the exam said the only reason for a deterioration of this degree would be diabetes. I was just recently checked for diabetes and tested negative. The doc then just kinda blew me off and said that he guessed my eyes were just meant to get worse at this age - im 41. My question is should i seek another opinion or is this a common occurrance??? Please help for my eyes sake.
