We believe that the Eye is the little window for the health and integrity of the whole body and soul. Many of of General Health conditions such as Diabetes, Blood diseases, Cardio-Vascular diseases , Rheumatic , Autoimmune diseases ,Hereditary ,Neurological and skin diseases manifests early in the eye. On the other hand, ,many of the serious eye conditions present by early symptoms, and here comes the importance of routine ocular and vision health. Our practice provides full comprehensive eye care services for all ages, including the pediatric and extending to the senior population. We are committed to provide the optimal care possible including routine eye exams, up-to-date examination equipment and nevertheless, personal care and time for thorough evaluation.
Dr. Wissa is trained and certified to manage and treat many ocular diseases and infections providing the most up-to-date treatment options for conditions including:

  • Ocular allergies
  • Bacterial and Viral Conjunctivitis (also known as “pink eye”)
  • Dry Eye Syndrome
  • Corneal infections and Contact Lens-related eye infection
  • Cataracts
  • Foreign Bodies
  • Age-Related Macular Degeneration
  • Glaucoma
  • Diabetic eye disease
Eye doctors know how age and risk factors affect vision over time for young and old, and they understand the benefits and features of corrective lenses, both as eyeglass lenses and contact lenses. We promise to take time to explain the results of your eye exam, describe your options and listen to your eye care needs and preferences.
Here are few common eye related diseases

Diabetic Eye Disease

is a complication of diabetes and a leading cause of blindness. It occurs when diabetes damages the tiny blood vessels inside the retina, the light-sensitive tissue at the back of the eye. A healthy retina is necessary for good vision. Diabetic eye disease has no warning signs. Finding and treating the disease early, before it causes vision loss or blindness, is the best way to control diabetic eye disease. If you have diabetes, make sure you get a dilated eye examination at least once a year

Diabetic patients are covered by OHIP for yearly exam

Macular Degeneration

Older people develop may macular degeneration as part of the body's natural aging process. There are different kinds of macular problems, but the most common is age-related macular degeneration. With macular degeneration, you may have symptoms such as blurriness, dark areas or distortion in your central vision, and perhaps permanent loss of your central vision. It usually does not affect your side, or peripheral vision.
Early signs of macular degeneration can be assesed by your optometrist during routine annual eye exam which is covered by OHIP for all senior patients.


is poor vision in an eye that did not develop normal sight during early childhood. It is sometimes called "lazy eye." If amblyopia treatment is not begun as early as possible, several problems can develop that can seriously affect vision from childhood into adulthood: depth perception (seeing in three dimensions) may be lost, because good vision in both eyes is needed.

Dry Eye

Dry eye occurs when the eye does not produce tears properly, or when they evaporate too quickly due to an ocular surface disorder. Dry eye can make it difficult to do some activities, such as using a computer .

Errors of Refraction

They occur when the shape of the eye prevents light from focusing directly on the retina. The length of the eyeball (longer or shorter), changes in the shape of the cornea, or aging of the lens can cause refractive errors The most common types of refractive errors are myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism, and presbyopia,.

Myopia (nearsightedness) is a condition where objects up close appear clearly, while objects far away appear blurry. With myopia, light comes to focus in front of the retina instead of on the retina.

Hyperopia (farsightedness) is a common type of refractive error where distant objects may be seen more clearly than objects that are near. However, people experience hyperopia differently. However, people with significant hyperopia, vision can be blurry for objects at any distance, near or far.

Astigmatism is a condition in which the eye does not focus light evenly onto the retina, the light-sensitive tissue at the back of the eye. This can cause images to appear blurry and stretched out.

Presbyopia is an age-related condition in which the ability to focus up close becomes more difficult. As the eye ages, the lens can no longer change shape enough to allow the eye to focus close objects clearly

Glaucoma is a group of diseases that can damage the eye's optic nerve and result in vision loss and blindness. It is one of the main causes of blindness in the North America. However, with early treatment, you can often protect your eyes against serious vision loss. Therefore it is very important that it be early diagnosed and managed. At first, there are no symptoms. Vision stays normal, and there is no pain. However, as the disease progresses, a person with glaucoma may notice his or her side vision gradually failing. That is, objects in front may still be seen clearly, but objects to the side may be missed. As the disease worsens, the field of vision narrows and blindness results.
Floaters appear like threads, spots or webs when the jelly-like fluid inside the eyeball, known as the vitreous gel, changes as a part of aging. However, the sudden onset of persistent floaters and lightning-like flashes of light, can signal something serious as a Retinal Detachment or Vitreous Heamorrhage. For this reason, sudden and persistent floaters should be checked by an eye care specialist.
Allergies affecting the eye are fairly common. The most common allergies are those related to pollen, particularly when the weather is warm and dry. Symptoms can include redness, itching, tearing, burning, stinging, and watery discharge, although they are not usually severe enough to require medical attention. Eye drops can help alleviate these symptoms and protect against seasonal allergies.
Conjunctivitis (Pink Eye) describes a group of diseases that cause swelling, itching, burning, and redness of the conjunctiva, the protective membrane that lines the eyelids and covers exposed areas of the sclera, or white of the eye. Conjunctivitis is sometimes contagious and can spread from one person to another at any given time. Conjunctivitis can be caused by a bacterial or viral infection, allergy, environmental irritants or a contact lens product. The infection will clear in most cases without requiring medical care. However in some cases, the infection may worsen and cause corneal inflammation and a loss of vision if not properly treated.
Corneal Infections, Sometimes the cornea is damaged after a foreign object or an abrasion from a torn contact lens, has penetrated the tissues. It might as well get contaminated by bacteria or fungi from a contaminated contact lens can pass into the cornea. Situations like these can cause painful inflammation and corneal infections called keratitis. These infections can reduce visual clarity, produce corneal discharges, and perhaps erode the cornea. can also lead to corneal scarring, which can impair vision and may require a corneal transplant. Corneal infections are the most serious complication of improper contact lens Hygiene and care.. Treatment includes antibiotic eye drops and sometimes antifungal according to the type of infection.
