Hello all, I have a little problem that I was hoping to get some advice with. In the last two years I have developed a slight problem with my vision. In my right eye, there are very faint dark lines in the broken pattern of a circle actually in my field of vision. The lines dont move around in relation to each other but sometimes seem to float around. I don't notice them at all when the light level is moderate to low, but when it's very bright out, or when I'm looking at something bright (i.e. the computer screen or a bright white piece of blank paper) then I can see them pretty clearly. When I 'squint' my eye they become more visible also. And whenever I am walking outside on a really bright day and look up at the blue sky, they really bother me, and I can see them, and the only thing I can seem to do to fix that is start to wear dark sunglasses (which helps a little). There are a few faint lines in my left eye but I don't notice them nearly as much. Anyway, I want to make sure this isn't a real problem. I went in to see what I thought was an opthmo on my school's medical service, about a year ago, and he said that it was just the webbing fibers in my eyes deteriorating and sticking together, which they sometimes do, and that I shouldn't worry about it and it wouldn't get any worse. I described the symptoms to him just as I wrote them now. I just found out today that he is actually an optometrist and not a very well regarded one, so now I want a second opinion, but I called their department and they said I can't see one of the optho's on staff until I get a referral from the optometrist (something he refused to give me). It might be interesting to you guys, that when I explicitly stated that I wanted to see an ophto only, the person on the phone said hmmm okay, then tried to set me up with another optometrist. When I told her that the person she mentioned was in fact an otpometrist (b/c I had their website w/ roster open in front of me), and gave her the two names of the two optho's, and asked for one of them, she put me on hold and then came back 2 mins later saying I would have to go through the original optometrist. Anyway, can you guys give me a little help here, and tell me whether this is something to second guess the optometrist about?
