( Dr. Gary Morrow, Local Ophthalmologist East York, ON ), 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. Gary Morrow, Local Ophthalmologist East York, ON ) 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 Morrow saved eyesight in left eye as he got me into st michaels for detached retina surgery. Scarborough general opthalmology doctor misdiagnosed me earlier. If not for Dr Morrow, I would be blind in left eye. He is relentless in solving eye problems. Very professional. Secretary is excellent also

    Constant cancelling (N=3) of cataract surgery after doing eye surgery on only eye. Greater than 6 months delay since the first surgery, but no problem repeating (3) extensive eye exams for 2nd eye (was considered my best eye). Others have had bilateral cataract surgery within 2-3 month interval from other opthalmologists. What's the problem here??? Has anyone else had this experience??.

    Dr. Morrow is an exceptional surgeon. I went from my left eye deteriorating to the point of being legally blind to excellent vision after cataract surgery! I am elated with the outcome and now look very much forward to having the other eye operated on! His team in the office are also very knowledgeable and informative. I can't thank Dr. Morrow enough for my enhanced quality of life!

    Both Dr. Morrow & staff were courteous & professional. I had 2 separate successful catarct surgeries & years later had an in-office laser capsulotomy. After the laser procedure I had immediate improvement of my vision. I am once again able to read music & books which provide quality to my life.Thank you Dr. Morrow.

    Very rude person. My mother left humiliated by him because he didn't understand her but they refused to have me there (or over the phone) as an interpreter. This is unacceptable. We will file a complaint with CPSO.

    Rude to his patients and disrespectful. Not considering that they might be fearful of procedures or have some questions of their own. He might be very good at what he does but he lucks in social skills. However, his stuff is very nice.

    I have been a patient of Dr Morrow's for 14 years running, no complaint's here. Duration time for expected visit is at the front desk, specifying it will take a few hours per visit to conclude, so no hidden surprises. Staff has always been amazing in my opinion. Rainbow and Kim presently do a magnificent job, in keeping thing's up and running in a very patient active environment. Dr Morrow himself has performed CXL on my Right eye, he has nerves of steel. I was awake it's entirety and his hand never trembled once. I suffer with Glaucoma. Ocular surface disease, Keratoconus, Dry eyes, among a few others, all ultimately causing me blurred vision, with Dr Morrow's help and thinking of what to do next, for the first time in 30 years, this year, I was diagnosed to be a recipient for PROSTHETIC DEVICES for both my eyes, After 30 years of poor vision I am finally able to wear something in my eye comfortably with greatly improved vision and I have to say thank you kindly to Dr Morrow and his knowledge for eye care. Summary:- Pro-efficient specialist who actually cares about his patient's eye care condition and he does a thorough diagnostic when you are actually in the examination room with him. Thanks to all @ Toronto Eye Centre.
