Dr. Paul F Engstrom has the following 1 specialty
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.

Staff esp the nurses were very knowledgeable and friendly, however they said that I would need to go back to my normal eye doctor for glasses. During my appointment the doctor was very nice and had his partner come and give me a second opinion before I left saving me a trip back to Roswell. I highly recommend this office.
I have had cataract surgery by Dr. Engstrom and found him to be very competent, friendly, He is busy because he is the only eye surgeon in town. Everything was explained to me and I was tested very well. I was given information about eye surgery and what could happen. My surgery was completed without any problems and I would highly recommend Dr, Paul Engstrom to anyone.
Dr. Engstrom left a stint in my daughter's eye for 7 years. We continued taking her back to see him numerous times when problems continued to come about, but he would always send us out the door with eye drops, stating that it would "eventually" fall out. The last time we saw Dr. Engstrom, he stated that the stint had fallen out and her eye was in perfect condition. Her eye problems continued so we took her to our pediatrician. Our pediatrician sent us to a specialist in Lubbock. Upon taking one look in my daughters eye, and to our disbelief, he told us that the stint was still in place and was in a dangerous position. Since she had grown and the stint had stayed the same size, it was in jeopardy of tearing her tear duct. He immediately scheduled her for surgery to remove the stint. As soon as the stint was removed, and costing us thousands of dollars, my daughters eye healed completely and the problems that she previously had, vanished. Never again will we use this Doctor, nor will any of my family.
