  • 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 Brunstine and his staff are wonderful. They are very respectful and also available to answer your questions. I had my eye surgery with Dr. Bernstein he did a wonderful job. My husband and my friends tell me how much better my eyes look now. I could not be happier.

All encounters with Dr M. Burnstine and staff has been outstanding. With every encounter you know there will not be any surprises about the procedures, treatment or billing from first appointment to the first pre-op visit. The Ophthalmologist that referred me to Dr Burstine said he is best in the business for the type of surgery that I had. And, OH is he right.

No, I'm not winking!

I was diagnosed with Bells Palsey when I was 22 which left the right side of my face to droop. I had shock treatments but they predicted that as I got older, the muscle tone of the right eye lid would deteriorate to permanent closure. There was no surgery or cure. In my fifties I was referred to Dr. Burnstine. He took the approach of slowing down the gravitational pull on the right side to match the left side by injecting Botox into my right eye lid. It allowed me to frame a smile for the first time in years. I used to hide my face from any camera but now I don't ruin the picture. Having injections every few months, not slurring a word, not having to manually lift my right lid to read, not turning my head when I'm introduced is a miracle even if a cure is never found. I thank you, Dr. Burnstine, for your patience in trying different methods, building my confidence, teaching me it's ok to laugh and offering councel for my nonphysical slipping. Sue Mahlmann
