Is Choroditis and Macular Degeneration the same thing or related
JA: The Doctor can help. Just a couple quick questions before I transfer you. How long have you had macular degeneration? Have you used any medication for it?
Customer: I have had a strain of choroditis for 18 years but yesterday was told I have macular degeneration which she says is the same thing. I don't think I have MD.
JA: Have you seen a doctor about macular degeneration?
Customer: No. I was only told by an optician yesterday. She didn't tell me to get any advice or offer any help at all
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the Doctor should know?
Customer: No, I don't think so. I am usually healthy but do have Frusomide for water retention which does reduce my blood pressure.
