I was diagnosed with dry eye syndrome in 2015. I received successful treatment and it was controlled with eye drops for several years. I then had cataract surgery in both eyes in 2019, which resulted in severe dry eye syndrome. On the advice of my optometrist, I used several eye drops, ointments and warm compresses throughout the day. However, this did not lessen the symptoms or improve my situation. I experienced constant discomfort, gritty feeling in my eyes and blurry vision, which hindered me from reading, working on the computer and seeing clearly. In addition, the hours devoted to treatment at home with drops took up a great deal of my day. My condition had a significant impact on my everyday life.
Finally, my optometrist referred me to Dr. Roshni Echharam at North Toronto Medical Optometry and Vision Care who specializes in treating dry eye syndrome. She recommended five treatments, (4 IPL and I Lipiflow) which she clearly explained to me at the onset. After the first treatment, my life changed significantly. My vision became clear, I have no discomfort and I feel I have gotten my life back, since I do not spend hours on drops and treating my eye. Reading and working on the computer are now a pleasure. I see clearly once again. Dr Echharam is wonderful; she is caring and explains what she is doing in detail during the treatments. Her staff, like she, are also efficient and thoughtful. I feel deep appreciation for Dr. Echharam and her staff.
In January 2020 Dr. Echharam began treating me at her dry eye clinic. Dr. Echharam’s knowledge of dry eye is amazing. Over the course of a number of weeks she provided treatments, suggestions and regular consultations to address my dry eye symptoms. I have seen a drastic improvement in the health of my eyes as a result of Dr. Echharam. I cannot recommend North Toronto Vision Care enough. It is obvious that Dr. Echharam loves her work and truly wants to do her best for every patient she sees.
I came to Dr. Roshni’s clinic for a dry eye consult and received IPL treatments. At first, I was very hesitant since I need to lip-read people to understand them (I am Deaf) and when my eyes were closed during the first procedure I was nervous. But she explained the process in advance very well and we came up with cues for me to hear or feel. I was comfortable and then knew what to expect after the first treatment. In addition, after each IPL treatment when it came to cleaning my eyelids, I had a fear of anyone coming near my eyes but she displayed extreme patience and understanding and we went at my own pace. I would recommend this clinic for individuals who have any concerns with their eyes in general or whom need dry eye treatments.
Dr Echharam has been my eye doctor for several years.
During that period, I have seen her grow into one of the best eye care doctors.
She has studied advanced herself and has all the equipment to back her claim to the utmost claim of care for dry eyes in all her patients. In my books she comes highly recommended.
Dr. Echharam rapidly diagnosed my eye issues, made sure that I had additional medical tests to rule out more serious conditions and provided state of the art treatment that addressed the root causes of my dry eye problem such that the problem quickly improved. This treatment, while not fun, was successful.
Under her care, I am managing my dry eye condition well and monitoring my eyes to ensure that the condition remains stable. Could not be in better hands.
Dr. Echharam is friendly, knowledgeable and has tons of patience. She has worked wonders with my dry-eye issue; always researching new products or solutions. The whole team takes such care in every aspect of your visit. My son and I have been with Dr. Echharam for close to 15 years.
Dr Echharam is an experienced and knowledgeable optometrist who is also super kind and patient. In addition to my vision issues she has also treated my dry-eye problems with great success. She has many recommendations and ointments to try in order to relieve the dryness and improve my oil glands etc in my eye lid and I’m happy to say my eyes are so much better now. Front medical staff are very efficient and pleasant. Parking is available in the building or across the street. I highly recommend this eye clinic.
First of all thank to all who left the amazing reviews about Dr. Roshni Echharam, which led me to that clinic. I appreciate that the scheduling was perfect, I had no wait times. I had a severe dry eyes situation and the thoroughness with which I was examined was amazing. The prescription and care advised is right on! The next day and I am already feel great.
My eyes were really dry & uncomfortable 8 months ago. After my 1st IPL I already felt some relief less irritated. After 2nd IPL also some improvement but after 3rd IPL big improvement my eyes felt much more better. I don’t need to put too much drops now. I had 2 different optometrists before and they didn’t help me at all. They just told me to put drops. I am lucky finally got Dr. Echaram to solve my problem. Thank you so much for your caring & expertise.
Seeking treatment from Dr. Eccharam at North Toronto Medical Optometry was the best decision I ever made for my dry eyes. Before that, I had been to a number of ophthalmologists and optometrists, all of whom failed to accurately diagnose the cause of my dry eyes or offer any effective treatment options. From the moment I walked into Dr. Eccharam’s clinic, I was blown away by the level of care, compassion and clinical expertise I received from her and her team. My dry eye exam included a comprehensive series of tests, after which Dr. Eccharam collected my full history, explained my test results in great detail and answered every one of my many questions with attention and patience. She also recommended a course of treatment that has significantly improved my dry eye symptoms and has even allowed me to start wearing contact lenses again! I am so thankful to Dr. Eccharam and her team for the outstanding level of care I received and for helping me get back to living my life without inflammation and pain.
