  • 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.

horrid

First time we saw Dr Zobal Ratner she was not too bad, the second time however,she was horrid. We waited 40 minutes and by the time she finally saw us,it was obvious we were cutting into her lunch time. She was curt,arrogant,did not listen to my concerns regarding my daughter's medical issue,and then "dismissed" us. The exam was rushed and not thorough. I went to another opthalmologist a month later-and my daughter did indeed need glasses. Never will I set foot in that office again, nor would I ever recommend her !

The office is great and has a small play area to keep the little ones entertained while they wait. Most of their exams also include child friendly movies and characters to capture the child's imagination. Dr. Ratner as such might not be a person you would want to interact with much though she seems to know what she is doing. Her assistant is a great person with excellent people management skills as well as knows exactly how to handle a child.
