2. I recommend going to a board certified opthamologist.
Edited on Thu Mar-24-11 10:18 AM by MilesColtrane
You should have a real medical doctor examine your eyes every once in a while, not just an optician.

He will dilate your eyes and examine their interior for any problems, check your intrarocular pressure, as well as write a prescription for glasses.
