I had a routine eye exam this morning and everything seemed fine. On the retina pictures, the optometrist mentioned that the blood vessels are not as flat as they should be and asked me if I get more headaches than usual. My answer was no, so he said it is probably just the physiology of my eye. When I started asking questions, he said that his concern that something serious may cause this is very low ( he pointed to the floor) and we'll just check it again in one year He mentioned that some health conditions and neurological issues can cause it but he really believes it's physiological in my case. Of course, my anxiety went overboard and am thinking now of the worst case scenarios. Can anyone relate? Will you seek a second opinion from an ophthalmologist or, since there's almost no concern, wait and have it looked at in one year? I assume that if there were any concerns, he would have asked me to come back earlier or have more tests or a MRI done etc.This is the first time seeing this optometrist and I am not sure other optometrists I had seen in the past mentioned it to me
I also got a copy of the medical report and everything seems to be within normal parameters, with only a note: optic nerve -small axial length. Thank you in advance.
