A posterior vitreous detachment occurred in my right eye two weeks ago. I was told by Southampton General Emergency Eye Clinic that it was age related and to go home. Not happy with this decision I decided on a second opinion at the local opticians who offered OCT scanning. It was picked up I had fluid filled cysts in the macular area of both eyes suggestive of "drusen" and early signs of macular degeneration. I'm really surprised it wasn't picked up two weeks earlier on my visit to Eye A&E. I'm due to visit the gp tomorrow and will take the scan and letter to show her. As I have a choice of hospitals to visit, does anyone recommend Southampton? I'm actually drawn to going to Moorfields, London. That's only because I worked Agency there in the 80's. I'm keen to hear from others who have these conditions, and if poss, has anyone used Moorfields?
