Biography

Dr. Ore-ofe Adesina earned his medical degree at the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine in Oklahoma City, where he was inducted into the Alpha Omega Alpha honor medical society. He completed a residency in ophthalmology at the University of Oklahoma Dean McGee Eye Institute before completing a fellowship in Neuro-ophthalmology and Orbit with a preceptorship in Oculoplastics and orbital surgery at the University of Utah Moran Eye Center in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Board certified in ophthalmology, Dr. Adesina’s clinical interests include neuro-ophthalmology, orbital disease, and adult strabismus. As a specialist in the evaluation and treatment of patients with vision problems related to the nervous system, Dr. Adesina works in collaboration with multiple neurologic and other specialists to provide the best care to patients with neuro-ophthalmic diseases. These include 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.

His combined neuro-ophthalmic and surgical training allows Dr. Adesina to provide the full range of care to patients with neuro-ophthalmic and orbital disorders who require diagnostic, medical and surgical management of their disease processes. This includes performing optic nerve sheath fenestrations for patients with Pseudotumor Cerebri/Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension.

Due to his specialized training, Dr. Adesina often sees patients with problems that have not been solved elsewhere. His philosophy is to treat patients individually as if they were family members, and his patients appreciate the time he takes with them using his specialized knowledge to take care of their neuro-ophthalmic conditions.

An Associate Professor of Ophthalmology and Clinical Assistant Professor of Neurology at McGovern Medical School at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth), he has been in practice at the Robert Cizik Eye Clinic and UTHealth since 2013. He is a recipient of the Dean’s Teaching Award (2017-2019) and has been listed as a Rising Star in Texas Monthly magazine and as a Top Doctor in Houstonia magazine. Dr. Adesina is a fellow of the North American Neuro-ophthalmology Society, and a member of the American Academy of Ophthalmology, Association of University Professors of Ophthalmology and the Houston Ophthalmological Society. Dr. Adesina sees patients ages 5 to 100. He also speaks Spanish.

A resident of the southwest suburbs, Dr. Adesina is married and he and his wife have three young children. Away from the office, he enjoys spending time with family and friends.
