Nomination of Dr. Ritch for Jose Rizal International Medal

Submitted by Bailey on Tue, 03/08/2011 - 1:16pm

In light of his busy schedule, we are so fortunate to have the participation of Dr. Robert Ritch on these forums and on our fiteyes newsgroup.  I have received immense value from the questions which he has answered (both personal questions and those of others). Additionally, his insight and information concerning the nutrional aspects of glaucoma, and contribution of current articles and studies are invaluable.

Therefore, we would like to honor Dr. Ritch here at Fiteyes by posting the recent Jose Rizal International Medal Award nomination..

Does anyone know who are the best glaucoma specialists in Los Angeles?

There are both USC and UCLA centers here.  UCLA has the Jules Stein Eye Institute and I'm not sure what USC has.  So there is not shortage of glaucoma specialists here, but ....

who is supportive of self-tonometry?

who is supportive of nutritional approaches, etc.?


Please help ASAP if you know of someone.  Thanks!

Dr. Marc Rose is a really good, upbeat, friendly and supportive opthamologist.  As he has said it to me, he supports ANYTHING that brings your IOP down.  He advocates a nutritional approach for patients who will listen, utilizing foods and supplements.  He wrote me a prescription for a tonometer and is supportive of that, although I have yet to find the budget.
