Not sure ofdiagnosis: Diagnosis determines what the cause is, and what to do. So, if you know why your eyes aren't healthy, have that discussion with your eye doctor to find out what you can do to improve your health. What is seen in the eye is what's happening in the rest of the body too. So, you can make improvements depending on the diagnosis.
