Yep, and it's gonna cost her yet another $300+ just for the part. At least I'm saving her the $150 installation charge since I'm doing the installation (again).

Not being a wise guy, but has had her vision checked recently?

Valid point. I actually thought about that yesterday. And I agree she needs to have her vision checked out.

Good thinking Andy. I didn't think of that. Good vision slips away so subtly that it is easy to miss.

There could be something wrong with her peripheral vision. A lot of things can affect it. An infected tooth, a bang (even a very light one) on her head, whiplash, etc. Have her see an ophthalmologist, not an optometrist.

A good optometrist should detect glaucoma, which is what normally would be the cause of loss of peripheral vision.

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.
