History of Present Illness (HPI)
A 70 year old male with a history of well controlled HTN and DM presents complaining of floaters in the right eye which he first noticed about a week ago. He hasn’t noticed a change in his vision but finds them very distracting. He’s never had such symptoms before. Without his glasses he states he’s “blind as a bat” and states he’s always required thick glasses since childhood. He denies pain or discharge. His last eye exam was about 6 months ago, at which time he states he was told he had mild cataract but no evidence of diabetic retinopathy.
