Specialties

Dr. George Panagakis 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.

Awesome results!

Absolutely awesome results. Top three doctors out of over 400 hundred! Best advice is to ask the office and operating room staff who they recommend.

Eye doctor for the whole family

Dr. Panagakis performed my child's strabismus surgery and he is now perfectly aligned. He did my grandfather's cataract surgery and he can now see without eyeglasses. He did my mother's eyelid cancer surgery and you can't even tell. He did laser surgery for me and I regained my vision.

For the first time in 79 years!

Dr. Panagakis enabled me to stop my right eye from moving and to see out of it for the first time in 79 years. It still takes my breath away when I see colors and letters with my right eye. I only wish my mother and father were alive to share my happiness and joy.

"...represents the highest of professional ideals" indeed!

During the process of researching for an ophthalmologist and then following through with the recommendation of a colleague, I discovered that Dr. P is the only ophthalmologist in the history of the University of Illinois College of Medicine in Urbana-Champaign to have received the Golden Apple Award. I understand that this award is given once a year to "a faculty member who has provided distinguished teaching and who represents the highest of professional ideals." I will not settle for anything less for my eyes.
