    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.

Excellent doctor and technicians

Dr. Cooney is professional, personable and caring. The technicians are also excellent. However the phone services have to be fixed. There is a new office manager and hopefully she can fix the somewhat scattered and disorganized phone system.

Mr.

Outstanding physician. Orbital injections are not something anyone look s forward to but Dr. Cooney long ago put me at complete ease. After 8-9 years of using his service, I consider him more than a doctor; he is a trusted friend. The staff is also outstanding.

You are in Good hands with Dr, Cooney & Staff!

Dr. Cooney was very friendly and approachable. The gentleman who performed the eye exam and had to inject the dye was very kind and gentle. I was so afraid that he would not be able to find a vein , but he did it in one shot whereas other places have had to stick me numerous times to find a vein. He was so at ease and thus made the experience non threatening . Overall it was a very pleasant experience and they made me feel my eyes were in safe hands. I visited so many other places where they made me feel that either there was no hope for my condition or I was just a guinea pig. They were awesome!
