If you are looking for an ophthalmologist, this may be your lucky day. It sure was mine when I was referred to Dr.Ed Wade. I had been seeing another ophthalmologist since May of 2009 for continued loss of sight. This ophthalmologist performed Lasik surgery following my cataract surgery thinking that might help. My vision loss continued, so he performed a procedure to correct a fluid build up behind my lenses. After this procedure, my vision continued to worsen, and he referred me to a retina specialist. The retina specialist determined that I had tears in my retina, and thus performed laser repair in both of my eyes. After two treatments, I was told that my vision would not improve, but it should not get any worse. I then went back to my original ophthalmologist who then told me there was no further correction that could be done and that glasses would not be helpful.
I have always been an active golfer, but I could no longer see where my ball was going. My son-in-law got tired of helping me look for my ball and recommended that I see another ophthalmologist, specifically Dr. Ed Wade. After my first visit to Dr. Wade, he told me that he thought he could help me. He recommended further testing, and from those test results, he determined that I had a tumor on my pituitary gland that was pressing on my optic nerve which was causing my loss of vision. He scheduled an MRI and immediately set an appointment for me to see Dr. David Baskin, program director of neurosurgery at Methodist Hospital. Not only did Dr. Wade correctly diagnois that I had a pituitary tumor, he also sent me to this renown neurologist for tumor removal. Prior to surgery, my sight was totally gone in my right eye, and vision loss was continuing in my left eye. Following the removal of the macro adenoma tumor, my vision has been totally restored.
Because of Dr. Wade’s insightful diagnosis, I have my sight and my life. He is my hero, and I sincerely thank him. It is a blessing to have him for my ophthalmologist.
