Dr. Bose is an expert Neuro-Ophthalmologist & Orbital Surgeon in Beverly Hills. He is fully committed to his patients and their health, and is an advocate for glaucoma and diabetic screenings. Dr. Bose recognizes the importance of screening his patients for these potentially blinding diseases and he takes great care to provide detailed eye examinations to those who could possibly be at risk.
The American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO) recommends that people who are at risk for glaucoma, a potentially blinding condition, should get a complete eye examination that includes recording of vision, testing of eye pressure, visual fields and evaluation of the optic nerve as scheduled below:
Ages 40-64 years: every 1-2 years and >65 years: every 6 mos. to 1 year.
The following people at an increased risk of glaucoma: 1. Have a family history of glaucoma, 2. have high eye pressure, 3. are African Americans, east Asians, 4. are far sighted, 5. had an eye injury or surgery, 6. have diabetes, high blood pressure or 7. are taking corticosteroids (like prednisone).
In the initial stages, glaucoma has no symptoms and a screening may show early changes that can be treated to prevent vision loss.
Diabetes can cause damage to the small blood vessels in your retina and result in a condition called diabetic retinopathy. Early diagnosis and treatment is the best way to prevent any blinding complications. Diabetics also have a higher incidence of cataracts, glaucoma, and eye infections. Patients with diabetes should have a complete and dilated (using eye drops to see the back of the eye) exam every 1-2 years. This dilated exam includes evaluation of the blood vessels, retina and the optic nerve using direct examination by special lenses and taking photos to see if these areas are damaged by diabetes. Following a dilated exam, the vision may be blurry for 3-5 hours, especially for reading and wearing dark glasses or shades is recommended.
