Getting a definitive diagnosis of DMO from an ophthalmologist who specialises in DMO treatment is an important step on your journey to dealing with your condition. Your ophthalmologist will run a series of tests to make a diagnosis.
Take all important information with you to your appointment, including:
Depending on which clinic you visit, treatment may be given to you on the same day as your diagnosis, and may even be your referral too. However, the clinic you visit may ask you to return another day for your treatment.
You should also remember that driving may not be possible after attending your appointment, as your pupils may need to be dilated for an examination. You will need to make alternative arrangements, which may include asking for somebody else to take you home.
