Question:
What could a dark circle on the retina signify? My optometrist has referred my husband to an eye specialist in two weeks. My husband is 69 years old.

Answer:
Without appropriate diagnostic evaluation, a dark circle could mean almost anything. We would need the appropriate anatomic and medical description from the optometrist to answer this question.
