    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.

Very Rude and Uncaring

I was recommended to see Dr. Shapiro by my general doctor because I have had a problem with blurred vision in my left eye for almost 3 months. However, I can pass a vision test with 100% accuracy even though my left eye is blurred, which doesn't make any sense. About 10 years ago, my left eye done this same thing and I never found out what it was even though I saw several doctors and specialist. It cleared up on it's own. Now it's back again, and I need to find out what is causing this. When I tried to explain to Dr. Shapiro my past eye problem (10 years ago) and that it is the same thing happening now, his exact words were, "That's no concern to me." I tried to explain to him that it also happens if I eat fish and he interrupted me to tell me that doesn't interest him. He did the vision tests and wrote a prescription for glasses. I asked him why did he think glasses would help since none of the lenses on the machine he used took away the blurriness. His exact answer was, "Well, you don't have to use them all the time. Just when you think you need them." My right eye is perfect but the prescription for glasses included both eyes. He couldn't give me a answer for that either and got upset when I asked why. He couldn't give me any real answers to my questions and was the rudest doctor I have ever been to. I didn't include every detail in this story, but I was so upset I left his office. I wouldn't recommend him to anyone. In my opinion, he doesn't care about his patients. He doesn't deserve to be a doctor. He is a disgrace!

Great Experience!

I was very pleased with Dr. Shapiro and his staff. I had lasik eye surgery and have never seen so clear! The nurse took me back and was very personable and thorough. I had a detailed evaluation with Dr. Shapiro and felt very comfortable with his experience and professionalism. I would recommend him for anyone who is thinking about having lasik. You will be so glad you did!!

Money hungry

Dr. is not personable. He is very awkward and aloof. His hard television marketing of the Lasik assembly line makes you wonder if he is just about the money. Not impressed with him at all.
