Specialties

Dr. Deepinder K Dhaliwal 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.

Lasik eye surgery

Both Dr. Dhaliwal herself as well as her entire staff were incredible. In terms of inspiring confidence they were all unparalleled. Friendly, knowledgeable, and always cheerful, they made my experience an absolute pleasure and I cant thank them enough for both giving me back my eyesight as well as making me feel comfortable and confident at every step. Dr. Dhaliwal herself was kind, confident, and extremely down to earth. It was an absolute pleasure dealing with her and I recommend her particularly and UPMC in general to everyone who is considering laser eye surgery.

Great doctor! Excellent experience and results.

I went to see Dr. Dhaliwal about Lasik surgery. I went in for the free evaluation. Initially, she wanted to do traditional in one eye and custom in the other due to my myopia being much stronger in one. Before the surgery, she had attended a conference where they taught a new technique in using the laser to correct with customer lasik my left eye which would have been traditional. I decided to go with the change in treatment for 2 reasons - 1) Dr Dhaliwal showed me she is conservative in treatment and puts the patients health above everything else and 2) she is in the top 1% of Ophthalmologists in the country according to US News. The results have been great 20/15 in both eyes. Surgery went smoothly and the staff at the Eye Center were fantastic. I really felt the Dr listened, answered questions and was very personable. I would highly recommend her to anyone getting looking into getting LASIK.
