Customer Question

Hi. The ophthalmologist said I have curves in the nerve at the back of the left eye he made me do the field test twice I don't think I saw all the dots. I'm very forgetful but also noticed that when I stumble it's always to the left sometimes I look like I've been drinking and I don't drink. Are they connected or is it my age I'm 58 years old forgot to mention that the ophthalmologist is referring me to the hospital but what are they looking for. Thank you. Denise

It is impossible to second guess your doctor.
However, The best educated guess given your information is that you are being referred for an MRI scan of the make sure there is no tumor causing the curve.
OK, so that is an initial answer….
