( Dr. Robert Adam, Local Ophthalmologist Toronto, 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. Robert Adam, Local Ophthalmologist Toronto, 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 referred to Dr Gill originally but for unknown reason I was seen by Dr Adam. He checked my eyes briefly and told that a procedure that will help with dry eye. It is by stapling my lower lead to the eye orbit so tears cannot flow out. I had that procedure 30 years ago and at that time it really did help. I was a bit surprised that it must be redone but since I am not an expert I took Dr. Adam’s suggestion especially since the first time I had no visible cuts or problems. It was done very fast by previous doctor. Apparently and in spite of the assurance by Dr Adam that the procedure will be very short it turned out to be almost an hour. The assistant came to tell him that few patients have been waiting and I could see that he was in real rush to finish. I have to add that if you are over 65 OHIP pays. Few days after the surgery I noticed that my left eyelid is hanging over my eye and I look like I am winking continuously. I was very concerned and called for an appointment. Was given one for a month after. In addition to the flap something sharp was coming out of the incision (he had to make cuts for this procedure). When I went to see him he pulled a stitch and immediately told me that it was not his but from the previous surgery because it was blue and he used white. His explanation “it was from the previous surgery from 30 years ago”. On my concern about the flap over my eye he told me that “nobody has 2 same eyes” and he could fix it but I must pay 1,500 dollars because now it was cosmetic. I was shocked because it was caused by him to start with. I went to him with 2 eyes looking the same and came out with totally different eyes. He made an appointment for 3 months later. During that time a different major problem appeared. My eye could not completely close as if the hanging skin on the outside of the lid was pulling down and opening the inner eyelid. I consulted a plastic surgeon in the Canadian Dermatology Center and he confirmed that I ended up with inverted lid and that can be fixed only by eye surgeon. He advised me to do nothing for fixing the flap until the problem with the eye closure is corrected. He suggested I see Dr. Gill who works in the same office as Dr. Adam. The receptionist refused to give me aplointment with Dr Gill because I have seen Dr. Adam. I went back to Dr. Adam asking him to fix it. He checked me again and said that apparently my eye was not closing completely when went to him the first time and he could see that. I was really upset because if that was the case he should have NEVER proceeded with the surgery but just given me drops that will help with the dry eye. In closing he said there is noting he can do and suggested I use surgical tape every night to prevent the lid from opening. For the rest of my life. I was shocked. My advise to ppl who are referred to him is RUN. I guess he proposed that surgery on everyone that is retired because it is easy money and the end result has to be swept under the rug because retired ppl should not complain how they look. Things would have been different if I paid or if I was 20 years old. He obviously thinks that past certain age we must be thankful for being alive and not complicate his life with complaining about looks. I we t with two perfect looking eyes and ended looking like a freak. Not only that but I also get the eyelashes on my left eye growing down and having to pool them out with tweezers because it irritates the skin on the bottom lid. If my review can save someone having the same post-operation problems I would say “choose another doctor” Unfortunately I I cannot enclose pics to show how I look which I would gladly have done.
