opthalmological exam needed

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for asking
Blurred vision has multiple etiologies all likely in eye and need an opthalmological exam

Take some acetaminophen and antivert for the vertigo and headaches.

My daughter gets severe migraines with visual spots and vomiting from an auto accident a year ago. Her doctors have done facet joint injections but she has many allergies to meds and can t take lidocaine.
