Question

 

 

Hi,

I was originally misdiagnosed with Punctate Inner Choroidopathy to begin with before finding out that I have Drusens in both eyes.

I have had them for at least three years maybe longer and I am only 31. What does this mean?

Does this mean that I will suffer with AMD later on in life?

Am I safe to drive for example? I often see things that aren't there, is this related to the drusens too?

Thanks

 

Answer

Thanks for your Question

Most likely you have something Called Familial Dominant Drusen which occurs in young age and it is characteristed by Drusens in the macular area of the retina in both eyes.

There are certain features of this disease, for example, it doesn't affect vision and it is not a risk factor for Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD)
