Momentary vision loss upon standing led this teenager to visit the eye doctor, whose referral led to a tumor diagnosis.

  • Patient had gone to ER a few weeks ago with back pain and headaches.
  • ER gave her ibuprofen and a referral to neurologist.
  • Scheduled an MRI but mother missed the appointment and patient was not seen.
  • I stressed to the mom the importance of getting the MRI done immediately.
  • Turns out the patient does have a tumor.

Another major medical “save” by an OD!
