    Hi,

    I understand that I can't expect to receive professional medical help/advice on here, however, just to put my worrisome heart at rest - I wanted to know whether anyone on here has been referred to a specialist due to missing out light in the vision field test carried out at the opticians?

    If yes, what was the outcome of your tests? Glaucoma or no glaucoma?

    Just a bit worried about it all as the optometrist was in a hurry and couldn't speak to him

    Thank you guys in advance

    I don't have any experience of this I'm sorry hopefully if I bump this for you someone else will! What I would say is better safe than sorry, and you're far better knowing now if you have it than later on when it's got worse. Give your optometrist a call if you're worried but hopefully you'll hear back soon and it's all alright
