Some common conditions that ophthalmologists treat are cataracts, glaucoma, strabismus, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration and amblyopia.

Er, Wasserman is a great doctor whom I trust. Has always given me his time and patience. Unfortunately, his staff is not always patient friendly. I feel the worst part of my yearly visit is being being "ambushed" by his eyeglass salesman. I shouldn't be forced into buying glasses. Especially at the extravagant prices the charge. I would like my prescription given directly to me and it's MY choice where I want to fill it. It's too bad, that these employees are a reflection on Dr.Wasserman and his practice.
Dr. Wasserman is a top notch ophtalmologist in Stamford. He is very well known and regarded by his peers as far as I can tell. You should consult him if you have any eye condition that requires such a high profile provider, as I definitely do. He is definitely very busy and making a first appointment can take time. He is also part of a network for off hours emergencies. With our plan, his glasses selection is very affordable and the lens quality is top of the range Essilor, as confirmed by independent vendors.
