Thank you.
She has an upcoming appt with her regular doctor at Kaiser. Her doctor can refer her to an in-house opthalmologist and schedule an appt.
Unless it's an emergency I don't think you can directly schedule an appt with an opthalmologist at Kaiser.

Not all states in this country allow optometrists to diagnosis. Only to examine and prescribe corrective lens and frames. Diabetes is another cause of vision problems. Too many variables to take chances on. Go to an MD, not a DO.

Now let's not diagnose the poor lady simply because she whapped off a couple mirrors. Vans are big and unwieldly to drive.

She bought the van so she can pick up our 3 grandkids from preschool every afternoon but now after this latest incident she doesn't trust herself driving the van and wants to trade the van for something smaller....

I don't blame her. I would too.

A moderately sized SUV could fill the bill without being so bulky.

She has owned 3 different SUV's prior to this van purchase last year. She complained she needed something larger for the kids. Go figure...

We're down to one car and it doesn't even belong to either one of us,

Rob calls me today and says, I need you to take my car for a drive, it's grinding when I step on the brakes... I said, "umm, no, I'm not a mechanic, call your mechanic and see if you can drop it off tonight". So we're down to the rental car from the fender bender incident a week and a half ago. Good news is, my car should be ready tomorrow, bad news, I have to leave work early (get there late after taking him to work), drive to the body shop and wrap up that transaction to get the keys, drive across town during rush hour to pay for his car's repair bill before they close. Try to return the rental, pick up Rob, drive back across town to get his car. I have to cancel physical therapy unless I can figure out how to be in two places at once...

The rental should be yours until you are able to pick up your car...
