Ophthalmologists

Many people report that it took many years to achieve a clinical diagnosis of BCM. This is due to the fact that the BCM is a rare disease and you need to consult ophthalmologists specializing in inherited retinal diseases.

Here are some ophthalmologists who have visited other patients with BCM or have worked in scientific research on BCM and/or on similar diseases.

In particular, some eye doctors are carrying out research funded by our foundation and have been chosen for their expertise and for their interest in regard to the BCM.
