  • 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.

Excellent doctor and staff

My mother is 83 and had been seeing a local eye surgeon in the small town where we live. When I moved to this part of the state, I heard questionable things about the local physician but excellent reviews about Dr. Zimm in Erie. I took her there for a diagnosis and cataract surgery late in 2014. Dr. Zimm is very good at what he does and you do not feel rushed at all. Everyone in his office is very helpful and professional. I am now taking her back every 6 months for check ups and to see if she needs a retina specialist. So far, he is not recommending any additional treatments, which I appreciate. I think the local doctor was doing some treatments which were not very effective and could have been harmful.
