Specialties

  • 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.

Great Droctor, but...

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.

Top notch, attentive and professional doctor

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.
