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. Bill P.C. Chow, Local Ophthalmologist Calgary, AB ) 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.

    Do not see this doctor. I was sent to the Rockyview Eye Client from the Foothills Emergency department after experiencing some vision issues. At the time I had been in and out of hospital for the past 8 weeks suffering from an undiagnosed inflammation problem and the new vision problems that included blurred vision and some double vision were thought to be possible complications, this from the emergency doctor at the Foothills. Dr. Bill Chow was the doctor on call the day I went to the eye clinic. I first saw a technician(?) who did basic eye tests, put some drops in my eyes and asked me a few questions, I told him all about my past history and what had been going on for the past 5-6 days with my vision. At the time of my visit I was in a wheelchair and was not doing very well. After that I then saw Dr. Chow. Dr Chow spent maybe 2 minutes looking in my eyes and declared I had Cataracts, I felt like he was in a rush and had no interest in understanding what was going on with me. I questioned this as I felt Cataracts do not affect you in one week the way this had, I also mentioned my history. Dr. Chow had the report from the Foothills Emergency in front of him and access to my medical history, but he seemed to ignore this. His advice was for me to get one of his cards and come see him in two months to arrange surgery for the Cataracts. I went home and the next day woke up blind in my right eye. This time I went to the Rockyview Emergency and within 5 minutes of being looked at by the Emergency room doctor was diagnosed with GCA and put on a Steroid treatment, why could an Ophthalmologist not have a clue what was possibly going on. If you value your sight do not see this doctor.
