Can an optometrist determine if I have retinal tear/detachment? Doc said I had good vision and eyes look ok.Or do I have to go to an ophthalmologist?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: Best see an MD

Some optometrist actually can make this determination but your best bet is to see an ophthalmologist who is fully trained in all aspects of eye diagnosis and treatment.
