    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.

Amazing!

I was schedule once before for LASIK by a different doctor who cancelled on me so I took it as a sign I shouldn't get it, but I ran into a former very happy patient of Dr. Michael Gordon's that had nothing positive things to say and pretty much talked me back into it. I was working and back in school so my time and budge was limited but I called and thought I will give it one more chance and they said we hav an opening tomorrow if you want it which was perfect for me. One thing after another just kept falling into place and I believe this was where I was ment to have my LASIK eye surgery. I have had many sugerys and been to many doctors due to rare health condition and I can say this was the fastest and easiest thing I have ever done. The staff was great, all very friendly. I have been wearing glasses since the 4th grade and now 31 it is great to no longer need them!

Everything a great surgeon should be

Opthalmic Surgeons have great gifts in that they can restore or improve sight to people. Dr. Gordon looks like and first class surgeon and is. He carries himself with confidence and has the right amount of clinical professionalism and warmth that gives you confidence in the process which makes you feel comfortable with making decisions and going through the process.During the actual surgery, he quietly commands the OR and has very steady hands that make definitive and confident movement.
