Glaucoma: The Silent Thief of Sight

Glaucoma is an eye disease in which the internal pressure in your eyes increases enough to damage the nerve fibers in your optic nerve and cause vision loss. The increase in pressure happens when the passages that normally allow fluid in you eyes to drain become clogged or blocked. The reasons that the passages become blocked are not known.

Glaucoma is one of the leading causes of blindness in Canada.  It most often occurs in people over the age of 40. People with a family history of glaucoma, African Americans, and those who are very near sighted or diabetic are at a higher risk of developing the disease.

The most common type of glaucoma develops gradually and painlessly, without symptoms. A rarer type occurs rapidly and its symptoms may include blurred vision, loss of side vision, seeing coloured rings around lights and pain or redness in the eyes.

Ortho-K: See the world through your own eyes! (Markham Economist and Sun article)

If you’re tired of the inconvenience of wearing glasses, but you are not interested in eye surgery, Ortho-K may be able to bring your world into focus.

Ortho-Kertaology is a proven, safe, non-surgical contact lens process to reduce or eliminate nearsightedness (myopia) and astigmatism. Since its development in 1963, Ortho-K has helped over a million patients through the therapeutic use of contact lenses.

“Ortho-K is the only way I know to stop the spiral of increasing myopia,” said Dr. Hafiz H. Walji, a local optometrist who has earned the title of Fellow of the International Orthokeratology Society.  Comparing it to a more common procedure in the field of dentisty, he added: “It’s like having braces for the eyes.”

The most common cause of myopia is a bulging cornea, and astigmatism is caused by an irregular or warped cornea. In the same way that teeth may be straightened through the use of braces, these structural irregularities of the eye  can be corrected through Ortho-K, resulting in often dramatically improved vision.

The Ortho-K procedure involves a series of special semi-rigid, highly pas-permeable contact lenses, fitted in progressive stages to gently re-shape the pliable cornea towards less curvature and more spherical shape. The procedure normally takes three to six months, with adjustments in the lenses occurring every two to eight weeks. Once the vision has been improved to its optimum level, retainer lenses are worn part-time to keep the cornea in its new shape, while you sleep. The procedure is painless, and the lenses are often more comfortable than regular contact lenses, Dr. Walji stated.

The Ortho-K process is safe for children, and in fact,  can often stop the degenerative process of myopia for life. Adults can usually expect to have their myopia reversed, and in most cases, eliminated. Patients with more severe vision problems of this type can expect a dramatic improvement in their prescription eyeglasses or contacts.

According to Dr. Walji, Ortho-K has allowed many patients to pursue careers that were otherwise not available to them due to their eyesight. Professionals such as firefighters, police officers, and pilots have benefited from the non-surgical technique.

“It’s like giving up a handicap of some kind,” said Dr. Walji. Other than better vision, there are no side effects. And unlike Laser or LASIK surgery, which have not been around long enough to do long-term studies, Ortho-K has been proven safe and effective in four university research studies for nearly fourty years.

“If you have considered surgery for myopia, you owe it to yourself to look into this procedure,” said Dr. Walji. It is considerably less expensive than surgery, and “it shows much respect for the eyes”, he pointed out.

“Nearsightedness is not a disease. Why would you have surgery on healthy eyes?” he asked. “Like a camera that is out of focus, they just need a little adjustment.”

Dr. Walji’s office is conveniently located right on Highway 7, just west of the Ninth Line.
