Dr. Heidi Lisker has the following 1 specialty
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.

Dr. Lisker was great with me - I had a terrible eye infection and she treated and cured my infection in the most professional and best of ways - she was always courteous, although firm, with her instructions, her instructions were clear and on occasion she even offered to waive some of my fees in case this was necessary, my visits turned out to be many before my eye was cured. In the end I didn't need the waiver but what a thoughtful sympathetic woman she is. She was patient and caring. On the other hand the staff are friendly but not as professional as may be at other offices but I was willing to overlook this to see Dr Lisker. I sometimes had to wait some time at the office, however, when I was late one time Dr. Lisker still saw me without fuss.
Although the wait time is truly terrible, she is worth every bit of it. Does a thorough exam, listens to your concerns, and is conservative in treatment. Someone from Reston recommended her to me more than 20 years ago. If anything (and despite the large numbers of patients she sees), she has gotten better and better.
I had already been to another doctor who had failed to diagnose my probem, and wanted someone with more experience.I called Dr. Lisker's office and explained that I had a potentially serious eye problem. Although they were quite busy, they fitted me in the same day. Dr. Lisker was very helpful, professional, and took all the time she needed to put me at ease, address my problem and make an accurate diagnosis.Great Doctor, I would recommend her to anyone with eye issues!
