Specialties

  • Ophthalmology

    An ophthalmologist has the training to do much more than just prescribe glasses. They are physicians specially trained to diagnose and treat disorders of the eyes and vision. These doctors are experts on the complicated anatomy of the eye and are trained to treat eye diseases through both medical and surgical methods.
    Some common conditions that ophthalmologists treat are cataracts, glaucoma, strabismus, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration and amblyopia. In addition, ophthalmologists can provide prescriptions for eye glasses and contact lenses and perform LASIK surgery and other corrective surgeries for refractive errors like myopia (near-sightedness), hyperopia (far-sightedness), astigmatism and presbyopia.

The Best in Delaware

I've had major problems with my eyes, including a blocked tear duct, for over 25 years. Dr. Abel corrected my problem. He is an excellent surgeon and a most caring doctor.Since then I have been seeing him regularly for cosmetic rejuvenation. His staff is also excellent.

Poor contact by office staff

Dr Abel is very through, his office staff are not so. I've been waiting since May 2011 to have this procedure done and I get nothing but run around from the office staff, ie waiting on test results, waiting on me to respond, waiting on paper work from other Dr's. If I don't call the office to follow up every week or so I get not phone calls from them...very poor office staff.

He is very thorough and spends time with each patient. Even the first visit of the day has a long wait in the waiting room. I haven't spent less than 2 hours in the office.
