I am a bit confused. I was diagnosed with AMD, age 55. Since then the ophthalmologist has been doing annual retinal scans and telling me it all looks stable. That was in Germany. Now seven years later I have returned to the UK and finally got a hospital appointment for them to continue the monitoring. To cut a long story short the ophthalmologist at Bournemouth hospital thinks it is not AMD at all but I must have stared at a partial solar eclipse sometime in my youth. And it is unlikely to be AMD because I am too young! I am a bit taken aback by this new diagnosis, good news though it may be. Has anyone heard of such a mis-diagnosis of AMD before?? Any feedback welcome.
