our visit with Dr. Nicholson was supposed to be a routine eye exam for contacts. Dr. Nicholson found pressure in our daughters both optic nerve and recommended for us to see a Neurologist, ASAP. Our daughter was diagnosed with Papilledema caused by an antibiotic that her dermatologist prescribed to her at the beginning of the summer. Thank goodness we came in and Dr. Nicholson did testing and pictures.
