Ask an Eye M.D.

EyeSmart is a program of the American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO), which in partnership with EyeCare America, offers Ask An Eye M.D. Through this feature, you can get your eye condition questions answered by a volunteer ophthalmologist.

Not every question receives a direct response. However, you will find out how to locate appropriate information related to your question. When you ask a question, please do not use your last name or other confidential information and please read the AAO medical disclaimer and privacy policy before submitting a question.
