Got an eye exam last week at the VA, found an enlarged retina, not bad now, but it could be later, here is a video and reasons you might need this eye exam, it is important.


turn in your old jackets, shirts and other clothes to a Salvation Army or any homeless shelter this year...

Well, not necessarily. I have a nevus in the back of my eye. I monitored it by going to Wills Eye. Then to Hershey Medical center. Its all about the equipment now. I now go to an Opthamologist. He has been in business a number of years and has seen it all. His equipment is state of the art.

So your advice is good; all things being equal..but is no longer a requirement in many cases. Don't get me wrong...a retinologist is required to treat conditions.

An ophthalmologist is an MD, though.

You are right, though. There's nothing wrong with an optometrist with state of the art equipment and facilities. As an aside, my mom always had me go to an ophthalmologist when I was a kid. Keeping this non-political, with the medicare system in this province (and my mom having worked many years in health care, so she knew the tricks), an optometrist was a visit where the patient would have to pay cash (or have private separate insurance). Because an ophthalmologist was an MD, it was treated like an ordinary visit to a specialist MD, in other words, covered. So, an eye exam at an optometrist would cost money, yet a visit at the higher qualified ophthalmologist was (and is) free. Nowadays, you have to get a referral to see an ophthalmologist, unless your appointment was booked within about a year of your last visit.
