Specialties

Dr. Kenneth S Himmel 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.

Dr. Himmel gave me sight when I was losing mine. I had Fuch's Corneal Dystrophy and he performed operations on both eyes putting in donor's corneas. They were so successful that I do not have to wear glasses for anything. In my humble estimation he is one in a million. I am a very fortunate person to have had him take care of my medical needs.
