When it comes to eye exams, patients may need to get a second opinion in order to get a correct and thorough diagnosis and treatment plan. There are two reasons why patients sometimes go to another eye doctor for a second opinion; one is the broad range of issues relating to the eyes and the other doctor’s diagnosis.

A Few Considerations for Second Opinions

  • The eyes and general health conditions of each individual are different and unique, and there are times when even a highly trained specialist cannot improve a person’s vision.
  • If you are not satisfied with your physician’s response to your concerns or questions about your vision, consider getting a second opinion.
  • Sometimes a different doctor can offer a new perspective or explanation about a particular situation or course of treatment.

Other Possible Reasons to Seek a Second Opinion:

  • Do you notice a flaring distortion around light sources?
  • Do you have to squint in order to read?
  • Are you sensitive to light?
  • Does your eye itch frequently?
  • Do contact lenses sometimes fall out of your eyes?
  • Do you see ‘ghost’ images, i.e. multiple images of something spread in a random pattern?
  • Have you experienced sudden flashes and floaters?
