  • 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.

have seen Dr. Vinger for years - only Dr. to correctly diagnosis me

I started with Dr. Vinger when I was young. He has always been kind and explains everything fully. At one time I went to a different eye doctor who was closer to my work. When they found nothing new and the symptoms continued I went to Dr. Vinger. He found I was overfocusing over 200%. He has continually helped me through good news and not so good news. I have never had anything but the best of appointments with him for over 30 years.

Previous rating was correct

This practice saw me the same day I called for cornea edema. The only doctor available was Vinger. He was quick at diagnosing an infection but no further explanation,and he abruptly left the room. As he was leaving he said, oh watch it driving. No bedside manner and lack of explanation had me calling back only to be told I needed to make another appt. I appreciated being seen, but not the treatment. Young girl on office staff was snappy when I called back.

This has to be the worst doctor I have seen. He had no bed side manner and basically wanted to get me out the door.
