What causes dizziness in a Parkinson's patient?
Dizziness is not related to your eye problem.
Welcome to Health care magic.
I am Dr. DADAPEER K, an ophthalmologist and I will be answering your question.
I reviewed your history and I understand your concerns.
It seems from the history that you are having hole in the retina. I think it is stage four macular hole as told by your doctor as macular degeneration is a different condition and stages are not present in macular degeneration.
Stage 4 macular holes require treatment by retinal surgery if vision is involved and if it is not stage 4 and if by chance it is in earlier stages observation can be done as there are some chances of spontaneous closure.
Hence you need to consult your retina specialist as advised by your primary care ophthalmologist.
Since the eye pressure is 15 now, no need to worry.
Increased intraocular pressure of the eye can be related with dizziness. Since the intraocular pressure is normal it is unlikely to be caused by this condition. Macular hole or macular degenerations are not associated with dizziness. Hence it looks like dizziness is not because of your eye problem.
Dizziness is a common problem in Parkisnson's disease and most of the drugs used to treat Parkinson's disease can cause dizziness.
Hence your eye problem is not the cause for dizziness and your retinal problem needs evaluation and treatment by a retina specialist.
Do write back to me for further questions.
Hope the information is helpful to you.
