13/04/13 5 5 5 5 Awesome! I can finally rid myself of my glasses thanks to doctor Silvera and his helpful staff. I have very bad astigmatism in both eyes, and so I had a rather strong prescription. I couldn't see 20/20 with my glasses, and therefor was told LASIK would likely not be able to correct up to 20/20, but that I should expect my results to be similar to my vision with glasses (20/30). I just went for my day after checkup, and I'm very near 20/20 now, and was told further improvements could happen as my eyes heal. Could not be happier. Thank you Dr.Silvera!!!  Respond

01/12/12 5 5 5 5 Dr.Silvera joined the Gravenhurst Clinic early this year. I was sent to him in June,and because he had newly joined I foolishly assumed that the wait time for surgery would not be long. I was very impressed with the treatment I received. Unfortunately after months of waiting and several phone calls I was informed that DR. Silvera had left the practice because of not having received Hospital Priveliges neither in Bracebridge or Huntsville. My sight has regressed greatly since my original evaluation.I was reexamined mid Nov. It is now Dec. 1 and have no idea how long I will have to wait for an appointment with another Dr. Since the Government has put a cap on Cataract surgery, I may be blind in one eye especially before I can have surgery. Shame on our local Health Care for not allowing this very capable Dr.to operate in our hospitals.  Respond

18/09/12 5 5 5 5 I was thoroughly please with my recent ocular evaluation done by Dr. Dwight Silvera. I have been experiencing dry eyes for some time now and Dr. Silvera recommended the use of punctual plugs which he had inserted in my eyes 5 years ago. He examined my corneas and said that the plugs have greatly improved the dry eye symptom I had been experiencing for many years; he also mentioned that if I were to have irritation I should try using artificial tears to help alleviate discomfort and also to clean away make up debris. I have been following his recommendations and find true relief in the dryness I experienced in my eyes.  Respond

13/12/11 5 5 5 5 Dr silvera perfrormed LASIK eye surgery on me last week. He was extremely professional and took the time to explain what he was doing during the eye surgery. Most people are quite nervous as one can imagine with such a sensitive area to perform surgeryv- however if you are considering doing this I highly recommend you request his services as he and his team of professionals were a delight to deal with. Throughout the surgery he kept asking if I was doing okay and nice he and his team were done they were there to make sure I was doing okay thanked me for allowing to perform the surgery I would recommend him to anyone considering this type of surgery. Thank you Dr. Silvera and team I can finally see with out the headaches of wearing glasses or contacts!!

15/11/11 5 5 5 5 Dr Silvera was very professional and helpfull. Keeping in mind that he is a surgeon and that he doesnt have hours to talk about your fear, he still take the time necessary to answer your question and the fears you may have. I had to have 2 surgery to correctly address my high prescription and both of them went smoothly. I could function perfectly the next day doing everything i needed. I highly reccomend his services.

17/10/11 5 5 5 5 Dr. Silvera & I discussed my prescription and the fact that I wear intermediate contact lenses at work so I can reduce my need for readers. He told me that they would not do an monovision correction,as my Rx is too strong, but I could have the presctiption in my left eye reduced slightly so I would still have some intermediate vision. He also discussed that even though I have issues with dry eyes and contact lenses my anterior segment exam was within normal limits. I found Dr. Silvera very personable and felt very comfortable with the recommendations that he made.  Respond

05/08/09 5 5 5 5 Dr. Silvera was very professional. I had done my research and decided to go on with the Custom wavefront PRK procedure with this doctor based on past reviews about him. The staff at Lasik MD North York are great. It has been about a week since my surgery and I am able to work and drive day or night without any problems.I am very pleased with the results so far and I highly recommend Lasik or PRK there.  Respond
