    Some common conditions that ophthalmologists treat are cataracts, glaucoma, strabismus, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration and amblyopia.

Very professional and knowledgeable

I have been seeing Dr Herbst for almost a year and highly recommend this practice. The front desk staff are very friendly and helpful. Dr Robert is very professional and knowledgeable. He always made me feel very comfortable during acupuncture sessions and helped me a lot with pain relief. It has always been a pleasure to come for a visit. This is a great place for someone who is looking for professional help in alternative medicine.
