Dr. Michael J Fischer 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.

One Star

I am sorry that Dr. Michael J. Fischer is serving as the president of the of NV Medical Board to which I filed a medical complaint. The NV Board has a long, recorded history of not doing its job in protecting consumers. In my malpractice case, damage was done to my face at a dermatology office and confirmed by a medical expert. I had one acne spot but got lasered excessively to where it accelerated wrinkling, crooked lips (thinner on top and puffy underneath), cheek volume loss, lip numbness, jowls, to name some changes. The dermatologist consequently referred me to a cosmetic surgeon. The NV Board closed my case, protected and exonerated the doctor, and would not respond to my questions. The NV Medical Board will also not allow for consumer reviews of it to be posted on their Google pop-up tab.

Very Unproffesional

I'm sorry to say but this was the SADDEST excuse of an eye doctor I have EVER seen. This "doctor" doesn't even do contact lens measurements. I mean, seriously, is this the 1950's? Who doesn't do contact lens measurements? With an astigmatism this is MORE than necessary. The office staff were also VERY rude! Don't bother going here. Their practices are EXTREMELY outdated, along with their decor!
