( Dr. Dena Hammoudi, Local Ophthalmologist Vancouver, 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. Dena Hammoudi, Local Ophthalmologist Vancouver, 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.

    Dr. Hammoudi was condescending. She didn't make a recommendation on how to proceed next. It seem she was rushed to get through reviewing my case. She didn't communicate well. I felt little confidence in her approach. It's a shame she is teaching students and residents. I hope they would have better role models for the level of care provided to patients.

    I went to this opthalmologist Dena Hammoudi recently. I had not investigated her online as you would think when you go to an ophalmologist they would be professional and proper and easy to deal with. After my first visit I would never return to her simply because she was short and rude in her conversation. I had to ask her the same question 3 times and I couldn't get an answer from her regarding what I thought would be a simple question that she could answer. I guess if I want to take this further I would go to the College of Surgeons and Physicians but I just decided to go to another opthalmologist who has taken care of me and was a pleasure to deal with. I wouldn't recommend this opthalmologist.

    I had a bletharoplasty a year ago and don't even have a scar now. Dr. Hammoudi was excellent. She showed me exactly what she was going to do prior to the surgery and what to expect immediately afterwards with detailed instructions for that 1st critical period post op. She explained the importance of closely following the instructions to avoid scarring. Now a year later and there are no scars just a great result. I highly recommend Dr. Hammoudi

    On July the 13th Dr. Hammoudi performed surgery on my eyelids. On July 25th I visited her office for a final assessment of my eyes. Dr. Hammoudi did an excellent job way better than I expected, she's very professional, answered every single question that I had before, during, and after the procedure, she a very kind person I was nervous when I went to the hospital, I let her know that and she provides me with a medication to calm me down, during the entire hour and fifteen minutes she talked to me about different subjects and assure me that everything was going on perfectly. Today 11 days after, I can see better than when I was 45 yrs old and I don't have any marks. I truly appreciated Dr. Hammoudi's gentleness, sweetness, and understanding. I definitely will recommend anybody in need to make an appointment and see her. Thanks a lot, Dr. Hammoudi. //Sigfrido G.

    She is definitely not a person with decent interpersonal skills. More than anything, she does not provide appropriate explannation about the procedure and potential adverse events. In the middle of the encounter, she left the room. I think the medical education or traing failed her. I did not feel like I was talking to a doctor. She acted more like a technician. I wish someone like her are not be allowed to be working in the healthcare system in Canada. There must be someone more professional and caring than she is.

    Would not recommend Dr. Hammoudi. She was quite rude, even when I asked a question about my procedure. Not surprising that her receptionist was also rude.

    Although the wait in her office could be long, that didn't bother me as they warned me when they called to come prepared in case there is a wait. She spends as much time with her patients as needed and I never once felt rushed despite the many questions I had leading up to my operation. Highly recommend her

    I was referred to her by my GP. But her front desk nurse booking me on the phone was not at all helpful. In too many ways. Gave her the benefit of the doubt the first time. But after three experiences on the phone, I pulled back and said I would ask my doctor to refer me to someone else.
