  The speaker in the video may have no association with ( Dr. Ashley Ko, Local Ophthalmologist Surrey, BC ). 
( Dr. Ashley Ko, Local Ophthalmologist Surrey, BC ), may talk about some of the conditions and some of the treatment options shown on the videos. Always talk with your Local Ophthalmologist about the information you learnt from the videos in regards to treatments for What is Glaucoma? and procedures the Local Ophthalmologist could  perform and if they would be appropriate for you. Remember good information is the corner stone to understanding your condition or disease.

local ophthalmologist is different from a local optometrist in that an optometrist doesn’t perform surgery. If you have a condition known as ocular hypertension, which is a result of high ocular pressure, your risk of developing glaucoma increases.Your optometrist or ophthalmologist may want to lower your IOP as a preventative measure.

Please contact ( Dr. Ashley Ko, Local Ophthalmologist Surrey, BC ) to enquire if this health care provider is accepting new patients.Patients are often concerned that an injection of material into their eye will be a painful or scary procedure. In fact, after the first or second injection, patients become quite at ease with the idea that they will have these injections, Following an intravitreal injection, you may feel pressure or grittiness in the eye, slight bleeding on the white of the eye and floaters in your vision. These are temporary and normal. As glaucoma progresses, it damages more and more of your optic nerve fibers, leading to vision loss. With primary open-angle glaucoma, the fluid can’t effectively flow back out of your eye. Angle-closure glaucoma occurs when the iris of the eye closes off the drainage angle completely, causing an increase in IOP pressure and damage to the optic nerve.

Glaucoma is a condition where there is increased pressure within the eyeball, causing damage to the optic nerve and gradual loss of sight.  If glaucoma is detected early preventative measures can be taken to save vision loss.

Cataracts can affect both eyes or just one, and some patients experience mild symptoms, while others can barely see any shapes or movements. Cataract symptoms include blurry vision, haloes, sensitivity to bright lights, decreased night vision, frequent changes in eyeglass prescriptions, and faded colours.

Glaucoma is a group of eye conditions that primarily affect the optic nerve, which transmits visual information from the retina to the brain. In most cases of glaucoma, damage to the optic nerve is associated with increased pressure within the eye, known as intraocular pressure (IOP). However, glaucoma can also occur without elevated IOP, known as normal-tension glaucoma.

When the pressure inside the eye becomes elevated, it can cause compression and damage to the retinal fibers that make up the optic nerve. These fibers are responsible for transmitting visual signals to the brain, allowing us to see.

    Very frustrating office and doctor to deal with. Dr. Ko seems to have her head in the clouds all the time and doesn’t know what’s going on half the time. Only cares about the money she is making off her patients. Do not accept a referral to her. Look elsewhere.

    My Experience with Dr. Ko was extremely positive and very professional. Before attending her office, I read a number of very negative reviews but decided to make an appointment because my Optometrist strongly recommended her and I have good respect for my Optometrist. The negative reviews just baffle me. Dr. Ko, other professionals in her office including her front office staff are efficient, personable, professional and communicate extremely well. I would very definitely recommend Dr. Ko to anyone in search of an Ophthalmologist. Ron & Marla Rayner

    The clinic called us even though the doctor was not available. We had asked to cancel the appointment but they refused and told us that doctor wasn't available after reaching clinic. They are in a hurry to get surgery done.

    I had a thorough eye exam and Dr.Ko provided me with a referral. I found her to be pleasant, very knowledgeable, and not in a hurry. She answered my questions and took care of me very well..????

    Prior to my daughter’s appointment, I searched online to see Dr. Ko’s reviews and they were not good. After having our appointment I felt I needed to rate her and give her 5 stars. She was personable and dealt with my 6 month old daughter with great care and attention. She explained everything in terms we could understand and we left feeling confident we had the best level of service.

    Very insensitive and terrible bed side manner. My daughter and I both left her office incredibly upset and feeling very confused and concerned. I ensured that my daughter saw a new doctor but 2 years later my daughter still talks about the terrible experience.
