Leading ophthalmologist publishes a case study in complete binasal hemianopia.
Columbia, SC, November, 2014 - The Eye Center, one of specializing in refractive surgery, has recently announced that one of its surgeons, Dr. Beau Bryan, has been published in the Baylor University Medical Center Proceedings Journal with a case study on complete Binasal Hemianopia.
Binasal hemianopia is a rare condition in which there is blindness in the inner half of each eye. For this case study, Dr. Bryan examined a 17-year-old female patient with binasal hemianopsia, as well as an 83-year-old female patient with the same condition. Both women were asymptomatic. Through the examination of these two patients, Dr. Bryan and his associates gathered their medical history, made specific notes of their visual field defects, and made particular note of each patient’s complete lack of symptoms.
The report, which was published in the Baylor University Medical Center Proceedings Journal in October, makes the argument that the lack of symptoms may indicate a longterm - even congenital - issue. The inclusion in the Journal, says Dr. Bryan, is a validation of the work about which he is so passionate.
“I’m honored to be included in the Baylor University Medical Center Proceedings Journal,” says Dr. Bryan. “This publication represents an ongoing discussion between medical professionals who are all striving to deliver their best to their patients and our shared profession as a whole. Part of our responsibility as healthcare providers is to push the boundaries, to explore beyond, and to never stop learning. I’m happy to be involved in this ongoing dialogue.”
