Ataxia and optic disc pit and macula hole and partial detached retina opticians said not necessary to see neuro opthalmologist

Hi opticians said andys eye problems didn't need referral to opthalmologist as opthalmologist discharged him a year ago that was before we knew about Attaxia I had asked if eye problems were linked to epilepsy or neurology and was told unlikely now we have attaxia diagnosis possibility secondary to meds does he see a neuro opthalmologist?

Hi😊 I was referred twice over a period of years by separate opticians, the last time was to a Neuro Opthamologist, although my eye problem was different. If you need to be reassured and the optician cannot do this, ask for a referral to someone who can. 😊xB
