  • 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.

Cataract surgery

Dr. Gira and his team are very professional and explained every detail, step by step. I am a retired RN so I am very scrutinizing when it comes to medical care. It was a very positive experience and my eyesight is fabulous. Everything I see is very crisp and clear. I am so grateful to you, Dr. Gira, and your team. Thanks from the bottom of my heart.

Excellent care

Dr. Gira performed lens implant surgery on both of my eyes in November of this year. I am impressed with his skill, professionalism and bed side manner. The surgery went smoothly and I am very pleased that I chose Dr. Gira. I highly recommend him.

Cateract surgery.

Dr. Gira was recommended through Clarkson eye Care. Dr. Gira performed my cateract surgery on both eyes. The result was highly satisfactory. Dr. Gira really went above and beyond to make sure I had the vision I wanted.

One Star

Was told I was a "perfect candidate" for upgraded lenses - out of pocket $7,000.00. Would only need readers for very tiny print. Never saw the surgeon at any visit after surgeries. Although I kept saying I couldn't see clearly, went undiagnosed with a serious complication for six months afterwards until I went to another dr. My end result is that I am out $7,000 and wearing tri-focal glasses to be able to see.
