Specialties

Dr. Joseph A Murphy 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.

Retina specialist and ophthalmologist.

Excellent results with retinal tear laser surgery performed a year ago. Very thorough examination and explanations. Pleasant and knowledgeable staff. Dr. Murphy is one of the few ophthalmologists who is also a retina specialist in the Buffalo area. So if you see showering stars or cobweb floaters, rush to a retina specialist.

I was a new patient referred by my own doctor - and it was an urgent thing - they got me in right away. They told me what to expect and that is what happened. :) His staff is A-1! Wonderful people! And Dr. Murphy is incredible - he spends time with you, puts you at ease, explains what he is doing and why, and what your problem exactly is. I am an RN and pretty hard to impress. But I am very very impressed by this physician, his skills and his staff.
