    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.

Great place to go to get your eyes checked

Allied eyes is great place to get your eyes checked. My first time getting my eyes checked it was a little crazy but this place was a good experience. I went in there filled out a little bit of paperwork and went straight to the eye doctor and in no time i was done.

Referred for Optic Neuritis

I was referred by my Neurologist so that I could get a thorough eye exam, as I have Multiple Sclerosis. I have had several Optic Neuritis flare ups and I have a lot of lasting problems as a result. Dr Matzkin is very thorough and caring. My experience with his office has been very positive and I have always felt like both he and his staff listen to any concerns I have, I would highly recommend Dr Matzkin to anyone needing ongoing eye care.

Fantastic Doctor

I was having vision problems and could not see to drive. I contacted Dr. Matzkin's office and they were able to fit me in. I was diagnosed as having two cataracts. Within 10 days his office got me scheduled for surgery and had both cataracts removed in two procedures. I first saw him and I had 20/50 vision after the procedure I am now happy to say I have 20/20 vision.
