Macular Degeneration & Cataract Lecture

Both Drs. Jeff & Tina Goodhew attended an excellent lecture last night in Mississauga featuring two pre-eminent Ophthalmologists. The lecture covered both macular degeneration and cataract surgery.

Dr. S. Somani spoke regarding macular degeneration, both the dry and the wet forms. He touched on treatment options as well as lifestyle changes patients can make. We routinely have these discussions with our patients daily so it was nice to have that message reinforced.

Dr. B. Khan talked about the different lens implants used in cataract surgery and the latest advancements in laser assisted cataract surgery. Laser is now staring to be used on our cataract patients. Feel free to discuss this new option when you come for your eye examination.
