Specialties

  • 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.

Dr. Pizzano was not competent, unable to diagnose my problem

Dr. Pizzano told me there were calcium deposits in my left eye and he removed them (did he?) He prescribed me Tobramycin for 4 days. I still felt the discomfort. He said to continue Tobramycin for another 7 days. After 7 days it still didn't get any better. I went to see another ophthalmologist who told me there was nothing in my eyes, just dry. She prescribed me an ointment for 7 days, the discomfort was gone! Why didn't Dr. Pizzano tell me I had dry eyes? He's a joke, should retire, too old!
