Expert Patient Care & Accomplishments

Dr. Selvadurai was one of the first 25 surgeons in the country to perform a 15-minute minimally invasive glaucoma surgery (MIGS) using the new OMNI surgical system, which reduces eye pressure and allows patients an easier recovery by virtue of it being a “dropless” method.

One of the aspects that differentiates him from other glaucoma specialists is that he truly takes the time to help his patients understand their procedures and feel confident that they’re trusting the right team with their care. That trust is earned, and Dr. Selvadurai prides himself on not simply shuffling patients through our practice.

Glaucoma can be treated, so make sure you get screened

By Staff Jan 27, 2020

Glaucoma is otherwise known as the sneak thief of vision. For the most part, it is a disease that damages the optic nerve of the eye and can rob someone’s peripheral vision slowly and methodically, without pain. This is why it is so important to get regular eye exams done by either an optometrist or an ophthalmologist.

Bill Westin underwent conventional surgery five years ago to address an infection and glaucoma in his left eye and save whatever vision possible. He lost some beforehand, which helps explain why he became so concerned in recent years as a cataract and glaucoma slowly robbed him of sight in his dominant right eye.
