Several months ago I had pain in/around my eyes and my physician referred me to an opthalmologist. I went to their office, which had an MD, and a few optometrists, and I was seen by an optometrist though I then thought she was a MD. Anyhow, this person diagnosed me as having glaucoma. (For anyone who doesn't know, glaucoma happens when the pressure inside the eyball increases for various reasons, and damages the optic nerve, causing irreparable vision loss unless treated agressively) I had a battery of tests and eye exams, and I had to go in every three weeks or so for the past three months to have my eye pressures tested. Each time they were reported as higher than normal, and I was asked to come back. I was taking medications that cost $120 for a month supply. I wasn't happy with this and sought a second opinion - why was I being told that my eye pressures were high, but nothing was being done except I was being asked to continue the same meds? Turns out that my eye pressures are absolutely normal! I have no vision problem, my optic nerves look okay...this time I made absolutely damn sure I was seeing a MD. I've had three months of countless worries - doctor's payments, medical bills and the worry that I had a medical condition that required lifetime treatment.. Should I sue the people who misdiagnosed me? I sure feel like it!
