Dr. Charles L Schaffer has the following 1 specialty

  • 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.

Poor Responsiveness

While on vacation my much-needed glasses broke. I needed a replacement almost immediately as I'm pretty much blind without my glasses. Since Dr. Schaeffer had examined me about a month ago I called his office Monday morning requesting to be seen right away to get my prescription. After having stressed the urgency of my situation I was told they could possibly see me in a week but if I left a message with a technical person maybe she could see me sooner which I did. She did not return my call until Wednesday. I went to Walmart on Monday morning and by Wednesday afternoon my glasses were ready. I chose new designer frames and they were able to extract a prescription from my existing lenses. I will not be returning to Dr. Schaeffer's office in the future.
