Dr. Eric L Roberts has the following 2 specialties

  • Pediatric Ophthalmology

    Pediatric ophthalmologists provide complete eye and vision care for children and adolescents. They’re trained to work specifically with children and they offer screening and treatment solutions that make kids more relaxed. Similar to optometrists, they can perform vision screenings and regular exams as well as prescribe glasses and contacts, if needed.
    However, they’re also trained to treat and operate on more complex eye conditions, such as problems with retinas, a lazy eye, crossed eyes or weak eye muscles. In addition, they come to the rescue when foreign objects and substances get into your child’s eyes and cause an injury, swelling or another reaction.

  • 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.

Just to make an appointment

I was trying to make an appointment with a doctor in Long Island Pediatric Ophthalmology but couldn't. The receptionist who picked up the phone was very rude and inconsiderate. She was impolite and discourteous and at the end she put me on hold only to hang up on me. If this is how the front desk treats people, I cannot imagine how the professionals inside the office treats their patients. It is very unfortunate that this doctor keeps receptionists like her and ends up losing business that he could have had.

Full Review Rating Breakdown
Five Stars

I have nothing but high praise for him, although for somewhat different reasons than the other patients who submitted reviews. My son went to him periodically for a couple of years during which time it was hoped that his lazy eyes would resolve without surgery. However, it was not the case and so surgery was required. Although we liked Dr. Roberts and thought he was very competent, my wife wanted to use a different doctor who had been referred to us by a close family friend to perform the surgery. I was concerned and called Dr. Roberts and asked to speak to him. Despite the fact that my son was no longer a patient, he returned my call and it went back and forth a few times before we could actually speak, but he nevertheless was diligent about getting back to me. He listened to my concerns and said that it seemed like the other doctor we were going to use was taking the right approach. I also mentioned that I had looked up the other doctor and found that there was a malpractice case against him. Despite his hearing this about an unnamed competitior, Dr. Roberts was completely professional. He said that sometimes doctors are sued meritlessly, or because they treated someone before or after malpractice was committed by another doctor, and that I should research the matter and try to find out what happened. I did this, and was able to determine that the other doctor had been sued for technical reasons and was not at fault. I'm so impressed that this doctor took the time and effort to communicate with the parent of a former patient who was going with someone else, and didn't seize what others might have viewed as a golden opportunity to bad-mouth a competitor. It is difficult to imagine so professional, caring and competent a doctor. I'm very grateful to him and my family wishes him well.

Terrific Doctor

My son has been seeing Dr. Roberts since is was not quite two years old. I am still amazed at the bedside manner Dr. Roberts has. I never feel rushed during the appointment and he takes the time to answer all my questions. My son's surgery went exactly as it was explained to me and the results were wonderful.
