I'm new to this and was just looking to see if anyone else has had a similar experience.
I went to the opticians for a standard eye test (including retinal photography) 3 days ago. I have not noticed any acute vision problems, but I am slightly short-sighted and it had been around 6 years since my last eye test.
When looking at the photographs the Optomotrist stated that I have bilateral slightly blurred disc margins and told me that I needed to be referred to see an Opthalmologist urgently, which I found quite concerning. She didn't explain what this could be caused by, but kept reiterating that I needed an urgent referral.
She gave me a referral letter which I have now taken to my GP to refer me.
Has anyone else gone through this process and how soon did you receive an appointment? And should I be concerned by these findings? I am otherwise fit and well and do not take any regular medications, so this was a bit of a shock! I do get frequent headache, but this has been a long-standing issue and isn't anything new.
