Specialties

Dr. Robert D Sax has the following 1 specialty

  • 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.

One dedicated prsctitioner

Dr. Sax has been nothing but courteous and kind during the years I have been a patient. My multiple eye issues are addressed as needed, and I am confident I have the best ophthalmologist in the area. His office people are not always so great, sometimes rude, sometimes difficult on the phone, but I won't switch because I trust Dr. Sax. Long wait times can be an issue too.
