Specialties

Dr. Edward M Balok 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.

Where was Dr. Balok

Had cataract surgery. Had follow up visit, eye patch taken off. Two days later realized could not see out of left half of left eye. Got appointment immediately. Dr. Balok out of country "on vacation" when I arrived. Subsequent visits to "doctors on call" were a rip off. Did they every call to see how I was? NO

Patient

I have been a patient of Dr. Edward Balok for over a decade and just had my second cataract surgery. I strongly recommend Dr. Balok if you are in need of this type of surgery. He is a highly skilled surgeon who has performed countless successful cataract surgeries. My vision was 20/30 the day after surgery! My neighbor had cataract surgery at an "eye center" out of the area that resulted in complications that went on for months. Again I would recommend Dr. Edward Balok who is personable and adept if you need cataract surgery.
