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.

A Throw Back Doctor / When Doctor's Cared

Both of my cataract surgeries (thru the grace of God) turned out fantastic! I highly recommend Dr. Skolnik for any eye issues that require surgery. I am old enough to remember when Doctors came to your home to render help. I was reminded of that when Dr. Skolnik called me later the day of my surgery to see how I was feeling. This says it all in regards to the care and the skills this man possesses. His staff is also world class with the latest and greatest testing infrastructure.

Cataract Removal via Laser (Richie Mijon)

Initially I was skeptical with the procedure since I had ALK and RK procedures for both my eyes back 1990. I was referred to Dr. Skolnick by my Optometry Dr. Deborah Weston, Dr. Skolnick explained in great detail the goals and objectives of laser cateract removal . Bottom line, I am very pleased with the outcome. Night vision is outstanding, no halos, no blur, never any discomfort and am pleased with the toric lens implant. I am enjoying a better quality of life. Thank you Dr. Skolnick and your staff who made this happen. I

Dr Skolnick has performed cataract surgery on both of my eyes. He treated me with care. consideration, & encouragement before, during, & after both procedures. He takes great pains to explain what he is doing & why it is being done. After each procedure he called me at home to inquire as to how I was doing. I am extremely happy to haf had him as my physician.
