Specialties

  • 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.

overall care

I was just about to write a thank you note to Dr. Niknam and her staff for taking such good care of me during a recent procedure. I needed her address and saw this opportunity to write a review. Dr. Niknam has followed me for several years for glaucoma. She is very thorough, caring and ensures all of my questions are answered to my satisfaction. She has helped me manage condition. I have a tremendous amount of confidence in her ability to care for me. She recently removed a cataract. Both she and her staff took such good care of me. I would highly recommend her not only as a physician but also for her genuinely kind and caring bedside manner.
