Patients

Seeing Dr. Buffie:

Dr. Buffie is an Optometrist providing routine adult and paediatric eye exams, including prescribing glasses and contact lenses. He also provides optometric support to Dr. Rahman and Dr. Kogan for patients who do not have their own Optometrist. He is able to accept patients without referral from another doctor. (Please note that we do not sell glasses at GEM Clinic. You are free to use the prescription for glasses at any Optical store or outlet.)

Seeing Dr. Kogan:

Dr. Kogan is a comprehensive Ophthalmologist. She accepts adult and paediatric patients (ages 8 and up) for general eye problems in referral only from Optometrists and other physicians.

Seeing Dr. van der Zweep:

Dr. van der Zweep is an Ophthalmologist with an interest in adult strabismus repair. Dr. van der Zweep accepts patients in referral from Optometrists, Ophthalmologists, specialists and other physicians, for the following issues:

  • adult strabismus
  • adult nasolacrimal duct obstruction and tearing
  • adult cataract problems
  • general eye problems

Seeing Dr. Rahman:

Dr. Rahman is an Ophthalmologist with sub-speciality training in Glaucoma. Dr. Rahman accepts patients in referral from Optometrists, other Ophthalmologists, and specialists, for the following issues:

  • adult and paediatric glaucoma
  • adult cataract problems

The reason for the limited referral pattern is to ensure that patients have some initial eye screening prior to referral so that patients are triaged appropriately. Referrals without proper initial eye information may be directed to the other doctors for initial assessment.
