Dr. David F Plotsky 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 first heard of Dr. Plotsky when I tried to schedule an appointment with another Ophthalmologist that did not take my insurance. He came highly recommended and I now fully agree. He is wonderful and very patient with children and thoroughly answers any questions that I have. I would recommend him to anyone that asks!
We've been taking our daughter to Dr. Plotsky for 15 years and I find him to be thorough, pleasant, and very good with children. He has a quiet and understated manner, but will answer any questions and takes a conservative approach to treating patients. I took one star off for ease of appointment because he is booked well in advance, but this indicates to me that he has a busy practice. I would unhesitatingly recommend him to friends or family members.
