( Dr. Jordan Cheskes, Local Ophthalmologist Scarborough, 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. Jordan Cheskes, Local Ophthalmologist Scarborough, 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.

    After seeing the all the issues and lack of care my mom has been receiving from Dr. Jordan Cheskes, I would not recommend him to anyone. After 2 unsuccessful retina surgeries, she's left with barely any vision. One of her eyes already had macular degeneration with very low vision so this was her good eye that she was able to depend on for everything. First surgery, retina failed to attach and she called after some issues started happening within a week or two after the initial surgery and next day appointment. Her concerns were basically ignored and was left with the original appointment that was already made, even though parts of her sight were dark/black unable to see. Next appointment comes and she's told she needs another emergency surgery (failed to get her in sooner after she mentioned the issues that were happening weeks prior.) Now more of her retina was cut again and oil was put in her eye instead of the gas. The oil was also left in much longer than it should have been and in between having oil and needles in the eye, my mom is still left unable to see, drive or do any daily activities like she could 10/11 months ago. She was supposed to have all the oil removed in the third procedure but oil was still left in her eye, ridiculous. She mentioned that in her last appointment and all she was told was if it bothers you we can go back inside (a fourth surgery, ARE YOU KIDDING ME?) Why wasn't it done right the first time? All of the oil was supposed to be removed and why would someone mention an issue if it didn't bother them? Makes no sense. I don't know what is going on with this place but is anyone qualified? Is Dr. Jordan Cheskes even qualified to perform these surgeries and procedures? My mom is left with large bubbles floating around her eye with already blurred vision plus her other eye that has macular degeneration. She's depressed and unable to get basic tasks done. Can't drive, can't email, can't read, can't watch tv, can't do grocery shopping alone. Something really needs to be done. This is unacceptable on so many levels.

    I have no idea why Dr.Cheskes never explains any procedure or condition w me. Twice I've had to get a 2nd opinion from another retina spec'st. I lost complete vision & have permanent retina damage after he gave eye injections in 1 one of my eyes. And his secretary is just awful to everyone & tries to answer my eye quest's when she has no medical knowledge or training. Awful & life-altering experience Dr.cheskes gave me. No support services, no educational material, no info on my condi's & no feeling of a best course of action. He treats certain pts differently & it's morally & ethically wrong. Don't know how he sleeps at night with his millions & cushy life-style. Disgraceful conduct & may he be forever grateful I never contact a lawyer or CPSO.

    Dr. Cheskes took the time to explain what needed to be done. He was accommodating when I wanted anesthetic and realized it was what I needed. After the operation he as kind and considerate. I was fortunate to have been recommended to him by Dr. Brookes in Oshawa.
