    Eye Doctor
    If your toe hurts, you don't want to go see a dentist. Eyes are very sensitive, and if there is actually something wrong, your doctor will just refer you to an optometrist anyway. So I guess if you KNOW something is wrong, go to the eye doctor. If you are not sure. I don't know if it matters. http://www.ashworthvision.com...

    Last year, my sister was having a problem seeing out of her left eye. Her general doctor dismissed the issue as just "general bruising". Luckily, she also consulted an optometrist afterwards for a second opinion and learned she needed a minor surgery to prevent permanent damage. The surgery was successful and the problem went away.

    I would go to the eye doctor because they would be able to figure out the root of the problem since their specialty is in the care of the eye.

    When my eye hurt and I was seeing flashing lights, I went to the doctor who sent me to the neurologist who sent me to a retina specialist who said nothing was wrong with my eye but referred me on to a neuro-opthamologist at my urging who diagnosed optic neuritis which the retina specialist should have caught but didn't and then the neuro-opth sent me back to the neurologist who diagnosed me with MS. Whew!!

    Does your eye hurt, Kyle?

    I start with my doctor, make sure it's not related to something else. Next would be my optometrist
