Occasional shadow lower left eye.
Non retinal specialist #1 declares a retinal detachment, sends me to spcialist. I spend a bad night in worry.
Specialist #1 declares retinoschisis, says we can monitor it.
Second visit a week later shows it’s not getting worse. He suggests laser treatment around it’s periphery.
Two weeks later I’m pushed by a friend for a second opinion.
Specialist #2 declares detachment and immediate need for surgery.
He brings in other doc at practice who says the same thing. Surgery within days or I’m a fool says doc #3
Non retinal specialist # 2 then next morning ( also after a bad night) ( also an ophthalmologist) supports docs 2 and 3, but is more vehement; says docs 2 and 3 are best and I’m nuts not to have surgery within days.
Retinal specialist # 4 sees both retinoschisis and detachment, suggests demarcating with laser and treatment with gas bubble, as surgery is excessive.
WHAT IS GOING ON? What should I do ?
