2. Is it possible that a person may suffer from Best disease and not know about it?

Best disease may not show any symptoms during the initial years. It may be detected only if an electro-oculogram is done. In fact, some people may have the disease in their genes but not suffer from any symptoms throughout their life.

Some occupations like flying aircrafts require a perfect vision. Since vision is likely to deteriorate in patients with Best disease, they need to be counseled to avoid such occupations and go in for options that do not require an accurate vision.
