Dr. Samuel P Solish has the following 1 specialty
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.

Eye Care Medical, epecially Dr. Solish and his team, are incredible. I have been his patient for over a decade, and he has done 6 out of 11 of my surgeries. He goes above and beyond to ensure his patients get what they need, and is always available to talk to. I wouldn't trust my vision to anyone else. Highly recomend him!
I had a trabeculectomy done by this doctor to control glaucoma. The surgery is the simple part of the treatment - tweaking the surgery site during the healing process is the tricky part. I was not an easy patient, but Dr. Solish worked to give me an excellent outcome. I have had my eye looked at by three other ophthalmologists incidentally and they all have said that the surgery results are superior. I am all well now and the bleb is holding beautifully.
