  • 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.

Unprofessional Eye Center

What a complete disappointment. I've never been treated so rudely by staff as I was. Why anyone would recommend this eye center is beyond me. I will not be returning to this place!

I have severe dry eye problem, When I called for scheduling an appointment, they said I could go the next day and see the doctor. But Optometrist attended me and gave me wrong power.(gave me -.5 which was really uncomfortable),So i had been to the same place to get checked again. 2nd time a lady technician attended me and confirmed that mine is only I had to get new eye glasses(not charged)....Still Dry eye problem..dr.Raphtis prescribed me change...he tried punctal plugs(dissolved in 1week ) just to try and see if I am the right candidate for permanent silicone plugs..I felt little better..So I had dr.Raphtis put silicone plugs in my tear ducts..I still have blurred vision and dry eye problem...So I am thinking to go see another doctor . I really hope my new doctor would help me with my symptoms.
