Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. My name is Dr Rick and I have two decades of ophthalmology experience. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
Yes. It is possible that changing your BP meds could be helpful.
That being said, it sounds like you have been receiving good care from very qualified physicians without any significant lasting improvement in your condition. If your cardiologist doesn't want to even try changing your medication and all of your other tests have not been helpful I think that, at this point, the best thing for you to do would be to gather up copies of all your medical records and travel to a large University Teaching hospital. At an institution like that you could be evaluated and treated by a team of sub-specialists who are at the cutting edge of their respective fields. The best thing about these large teaching hospitals is that consultations are available with Professors and leaders in their field by just walking a few steps down the hall.
The Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota is an excellent example of just such a place as this. That being said there are many excellent teaching hospitals all across the country and I am sure that there is one near you.
Does this make sense to you?
