Specialties

Dr. Franz K Michel has the following 1 specialty

  • 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 Doctor with Amazing Results

Dr. Michel performed a no-cut lasik procedure on my eyes. I was very nervous about the process, but he put me at ease. I got the results immediately, and my sight is better than I even expected. I highly recommend him.

Awesome Eye Surgery

Dr Michel did an awesome job removing my re-occurring scar tissue. I was able to see through the operated eye the same day of the surgery. Recovery was quicker than expected; also, bleeding and pain was minimal. I had Ptyrigium Growth (scar tissue) removal twice before (once on each eye), and this was the best experience from pain and recovery of all three. If necessary, I WILL return for Dr Michel's services.

Really, Really Good Doctor

I have been told (by my old opthomologist) that my eye pressure was high. This year, my primary sent me to Dr. Michel because she highly respects him. Dr. Michel took a thorough look at my eyes, and was able to tell me that I had been misdiagnosed . . . my eyes were healthy. I am so grateful that I was sent to him! He is extremely intelligent, efficient, and he respects the time you are there. I have a little drive to get to him, but I wouldn't go to anyone else now. I highly recommend him!
