( Dr. Niranjan Vijayakanthan, Local Ophthalmologist North Bay, 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. Niranjan Vijayakanthan, Local Ophthalmologist North Bay, 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.

    I was at this clinic today apparently they do different tests for the rich and for the poor .one test is covered by Ohip or you can have a more accurate test done with laser but it will cost you 400.00. Then the receptionist explained a 4 page document of what to do the day of the surgery but your appointment isn't for 10 months. 10 months I couldn't believe it.i asked the receptionist why they are taking patients when they are so far behind why wouldn't people be sent somewhere else instead of walking around blind for a year waiting to have cataracts removed.I was informed by the receptionist if I wanted to go anywhere else I would have to pay for the surgery. This is the healthcare people can expect to receive when they move to northern Ontario

    This is from a vist over a year ago. Referred by my optometrist, waited months, so was surprised to be rushed through appointment. Very pleasant; used puffer on my eyes and wrote prescription for eye pressure drops; gave 20 repeats and said to come back in four months. There was no other discussion about the drops. He noticed my dry eye drops I had with me had no preservative and said, thats good, no preservatives, yet prescribed strong eye drops with a preservative. This was when first starting out... maybe he has changed and not under so much pressure? Is now also in his own office and not sharing; however, I would definitely hestitate to revisit. Afer when I asked my optometrist of 12 years if I could have my eye pressure retaken at intervals and come in to discuss the appointment and medications with her, she refused. Therefore I changed optometrists and was also referred to one of the top gluocoma specialists in Ontario if not Canada! I feel I should have spoken up at the time and would in future: my eyes!
