  • 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.

Great Experience

I went to see Dr. Akler on the recommendation of a friend. I needed an eye exam and some laser surgery on one eye. Everyone at Akler Eye Center was great. They were friendly and professional. The technician who saw me first explained everything she was doing and what the doctor would do. She told me exactly what to expect during the surgery, which only took a few minutes. She also checked to see exactly what my insurance would cover so there would be no surprises later. When I saw Dr. Akler she was great. She also went over everything that would happen so that I was completely comfortable. While I was waiting for my eyes to dilate I was able to observe her with another patient and I could tell she was a very caring person who valued her patients. I was completely satisfied with my experience with Dr. Akler and her associates. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her.

Cataract Surgery

After finding out that eye glass vision correction was no longer an option for my left eye, I began a search for a cataract surgeon. I was very apprehensive since I had never had any type of prior surgery. Doctor Ackler and Roxana spent a substantial amount of time answering my questions and ultimately put me at ease about completing the surgery on my left eye. This review was prepared 2 days after the surgery and I can see better than ever. For me, having Dr. Ackler complete the surgery was the right decision. I also have a smaller cataract in my right eye that I had planned to address with stronger eye glasses. However, after experiencing the great improvement in my left eye, I am seriously considering completing the right eye surgery in the very near future. I strongly recommend Doctor Adler for any eye issue and especially for cataract surgery.
