Specialties

Dr. Michael J Newton 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.

Check up

Thorough, honest, professional. Exactly what you want in an eye doctor. About my experience: After wearing fashionable readers (+3 years since prior visit), it was time for a check up. Dr. Newton and his team examined me and extensively tested me . Result- your eyes are aging, no need for a prescription. Your readers are fine- no need to spend extra money. That is a welcome, honest point of view! I will return in 2 years.

Five Stars

Dr. Newton and his staff were absolutely excellent. I could not ask for better treatment than I received. I had cataracts operated on and found the entire experience less daunting than I ever thought it would be. I was so pleased I am now using Dr. Newtonas my regular eye doctor and recommend him to anyone looking for an excellent surgeon or eye doctor.
