Specialties

Dr. Dean M Cestari has the following 2 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.

  • Neurology

    A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
    Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
    In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

Blessed to have been Dr. Cestari's patient.

No superlative could adequately express the magnificent level of care that I received while under Dr. Cestari's care. Besides his extraordinary medical skills, which improved my eyesight as well as the quality of my life, Dr. Cesatari's empathy, patience, and ability to listen made his sincere caring obvious. Dr. Cestari spent whatever amount of time was required so that the issues were addressed, questions answered and the highest level of care provided. I am blessed to have been his patient.

Very Thankful

I can’t thank Dr. Cestari enough for correcting my father’s double vision. My father was about to give up hope after being told by four doctors that his double vision could not be corrected. This is when my family decided to take him to Mass Eye and Ear. We were so impressed with the level of care my father received. He left his first appointment being able to see single, with a temporary fix to his glasses, for the first time in almost 2 years. A few months later Dr. Cestari surgically corrected my father’s double vision. When my father awoke from surgery he was able to see perfect without his glasses. Again, my father and I can’t thank Dr. Cestari and his team at Mass Eye and Ear enough for correcting my father’s double vision and getting his life back.

Patient, Skilled Doctor

I experienced excellent care and successful corrective surgery for my double vision. I am fortunate that after years of struggle and endless doctors, my problem was resolved surgically by Dr Cestari. There are no words for the significant improvement of my quality of life. I am a real patient that thanks Dr Cestari and would highly recommend him.
