Dr. Elena B Roth has the following 1 specialty
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.

My visit with Dr. Roth was both pleasant and helpful I had been to two doctors for my blepharitis and dry eyes and was still miserable. She spent time with me and prescribed treatments with a special drop that is only made at Bascom Palmer. For the first time, my eyes feel better! The staff at the office was so courteous and pleasant. I highly recommend this doctor!
I scheduled a visit with Dr. Roth based on the knowledge that Bascom Palmer is the best for eye care and I had already seen three doctors for my problem with my eye and it was unresolved. I know that Bascom Palmer is excellent because other family members see other doctors there. But Dr. Roth is exceptionally poor in my opinion. I'm shocked she is associated with Bascom Palmer. She was distracted during my visit, failed to write the tapered dosing instructions for the drops she prescribed and then when I called to ask for them she actually said to me, with a snippy tone, "it really doesn't matter anyway - it's 6 of one and half dozen of the other". She prescribed cortisteriod drops for my eye for a month - it matters to me!! She's awful. Stay away from her.
