Specialties

Dr. Jay L Schwartz 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.

After over two hours of examinations, and billing Medicare, would not give me an eye prescription.

Only interested in providing cataract laser surgery.

My appointment for an eye refraction lasted 2 hours & 15 minutes. Dr. Schwartz spent 3 minutes with me. Dr. Schwartz never reviewed the results of the eye refraction I had with his staff or offered me a copy of the RX. Too much waiting time in the office & no communication from Dr. Schwartz.

I have almost always had a long wait before apointments. I got the most expensive custom lasik eye surgery offered to me (and I am in great health under 30), and now more than 6 months after surgery, I still do not have perfect vision and have to use medicated eye drops due to my new condition of dry eyes. In my follow up visits I feel like my concerns are being ignored and that I should just "wait and see what happens." I was even told that my vision is pretty good, it's just the "quality of the vision" is what's lacking- although to me, it doesn't change the fact that I cannot see well.
