Myopic MD can happen to much younger people in their 20s and 30s although I was diagnosed with it when I was 55 (I'm 67 now) just in my left eye.

... I have been having some vision distortion and have been told I have a scar at the back of my right retina. This scar was noted previously, after I had vitreous collapse - both eyes- after having general anaesthetic (told no connection just a coincidence !) but no-one told me then, 3 yrs ago, or photographed it for comparison.

Let me start by saying that my eyes are the worst most docs have seen in a functioning person. I am too far gone to be a candidate for lasik anymore. I started wearing glasses the day after I got...
