Dr. Paul S Koch 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.

I had a horrible refractive laser surgery experience with this doctor, and I question whether he made the treatment decisions having his patient's - mine - best interest in mind. As an outcome of the surgery performed by Paul, my vision indoors is blurry, I see ghosting images (under indoor lighting),and I see starbursts off the streetlight reflections of car fenders. Koch Eye Associates stated that these effects are normal side effects of the treatment, and refused to diagnose lest treat them (I paid to a different practice to get my eyes scanned to find out that my corneas were not reshaped properly). To add insult to injury, only after the surgery I was told that I was a borderline candidate. But, evidently, Koch Eye Associates consider my result great because I can read the 20/20 line on the table. Hence, I am probably even included into their "success" statistics - even though I consider my surgery botched.
