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 can't do justice in this review because of my elementary vocabulary. I've never felt more at ease with a procedure. Dr Lowenthal diagnosed my macular off detachment and took immediate action. He met me at his office on Saturday morning and I was out of there in no time. No pain! Very minimal discomfort and he was kind and understanding when I grimaced. His office staff were as professional and kind as he is - obviously patterning themselves by his example. I hesitate to mention a second procedure was required for fear that it would be interpreted by the reader that he hadn't successfully performed the first one. But nothing could be further from the truth. I now have 20/20 vision! I label my experience as "PERFECT"!
Dr. Lowenthal treated my mother's eye problems while she was extremely ill with cancer, congestive heart failure, and lymphedema. I cannot express how impressed I am with Dr. Lowenthal's bedside manner, his compassion, and his genuine concern.He truly cares about each and every patient. My mother was so comfortable under his care and trusted his judgment unconditionally.I am forever grateful for the exceptional care he gave my mother during her last year of life.Dr. Lowenthal is a model doctor and demonstrates every characteristic of an exemplary physician.
