I went to the opticians yesterday as my new puppy ate my glasses, he told me I have to go to hospital as my prescription is now left eye -7.50 right eye -9 and no periphral vision in right eye at all and very little in my left… He also said there were some nerve changes in the back of my eye but in the next breath said he won’t do it as an emergency? I’m baffled anyone else had this..x thank you for your help in advance xx
My daughter has Hypermobile EDS [like me]. She has what her optometrist calls wanna-be-tunnel-vision. When she was learning to drive we were shocked with how many stop signs and traffic lights she was missing; she could parallel park but not do the easy diagonal parking in supermarket parking lots! A therapeutic optometrist was recommended by a friend and he fixed the issue with yoked prisms in her glasses. I’ll never forget what my daughter said when she wore her new glasses for the first time, “I had no idea the road was this wide!”. These glasses were acquired right before she started college 9 years ago and also made a huge difference in her ability to read pages rapidly.

I’m not sure where you are from but it sounds like your aren’t in the US. In the US we handle those things a little differently as our medical system is set up a little different. Have you seen this doctor before? I would either go back and ask for more details (ie. a better explanation as to what is going on and why he wants to send you to the hospital or perhaps see another doctor. Be persistent until you have either found an answer that makes sense or you’ve found a doctor that is taking care of you problems.
I hope that helps.
