Dr. Carol J Ziel has the following 1 specialty
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.

I did not really realize just how bad my vision was until I visited her office and then she performed the laser surger and put in the implants. It was like night and day to me at once. 1 Yr. later or so we did the other eye and I could not believe it, it was like I had my eye sight I enjoyed back in my twenties as a young man. Dr. Ziel was very forth coming, from start to finish and fully explained procedure to me before and during so I never got the least bit nervous and it was done so quick. I never had then or since any problem(s) due to the surgery and implants. I recommend her 100% to any and everyone. Doug Styers Walkertown, N.C. 27051
Went to her for a "normal" cataract operation on my right eye. My vision did not improve; in fact, it became worse; I now have a "bubble" in the eye, right in the center of my vision. On a follow-up she said she couldn't see it. I then went to Dr. Greg Temas who did see it and lasered a few floaters but didn't it improve my vision. I wish I had the cataract back.
