Dr. Ore-Ofe Adesina earned his medical degree at the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine in Oklahoma City. He completed a residency at the Dean McGee Eye Institute, University of Oklahoma; a fellowship in neuro-ophthalmology at the Moran Eye Center, University of Utah; and a preceptorship in oculoplastics and orbital surgery at the Moran Eye Center.
Board-certified in ophthalmology, Dr. Adesina’s clinical interests include neuro-ophthalmology, general ophthalmology and oculoplastics, with a focus on diseases affecting the optic nerves and orbit. He serves as a clinical assistant professor of ophthalmology at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth) Medical School. He has been in practice at the Robert Cizik Eye Clinic at UTHealth since 2013. He treats patients of all ages, preferably six and older, and speaks Spanish.
As a specialist in the evaluation and treatment of patients with vision problems related to the nervous system, Dr. Adesina works in collaboration with neuroradiologists, neurosurgeons, neurologists and ear-nose-throat specialists to provide the best care to patients with neuro-ophthalmic diseases: visual, eye movement, eyelid, and pupillary disturbances arising from optic neuritis, ischemic optic neuropathy, pseudo tumor cerebri, central nervous system tumors and strokes, trauma, cranial nerve palsies causing double vision, myasthenia gravis and thyroid-related eye disease.
Dr. Adesina often sees patients with problems that have not been solved elsewhere. He treats patients individually as if they were family members, taking time to find out what is going on and helping them understand their sometimes-complicated conditions so they clearly understand them.
A resident of the southwest suburbs, Dr. Adesina is married and the father of a young son. Outside of his practice, he enjoys soccer, basketball and watching movies.
