I am a 57 year old female. One year ago during a routine eye exam using the OCT machine and a Fundus Photo, my Opthamologist diagnosed me with Early Stage Macular Degeneration. A few weeks later I went to my Optomitrist who also did testing using the OCT machine and a Fundus Photo and said there was no evidence of Macular Degeneration.
I'm very aware of the differences between an Opthamologist and Optomitrist but I'm confused as heck because how can there be two different diagnosis when both doctors used the same machines? I don't smoke and the Optomitrist corrected my vision to 20/20 with new eye glasses.
Has anyone ever heard of this happening?
