Specialties

Dr. John D Babb 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.

Simply the Best

Dr. Babb has been my doctor for over 20 years. He is the best eye doctor in NYC. Pretty tall claim but I stand by it. In fact I would not let anyone else touch my eyes. He performed my surgeries, always answers questions and takes time to explain everything in detail. He is quite through and knowledgeable. If you are more concerned with how long you are waiting at the doctor, then he is not the one for you. He takes his time with each patient and you never have to leave his office wondering. I have been seen for emergencies and I love his staff. Simply the Best.

Extraordinary for today's physicians. Aside for a one hour wait which is sort of average, he took unhurried time to explain everything with words and with pictures. Gave samples until I had a chance to go to the pharmacy. Pleasant and courteous.
