  • 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.

I had a disease of my corneas from the times I was 18. It was not picked up until my twenties. I saw many doctors one doctor going to do a corneal transplant however he passed away. I saw another doctor when I mentioned the transplant he showed me a patient you had a milky white eye. I was scared to death the only thing I could do was wear contact lenses and I would get many infections in my eye. I contacted three different doctors and was told by two to make an appointment. When I contacted Dr Orlin I was told he was in surgery and would call me back. He did and spoke to me for almost a half hour and explained everything to me. I decided he was the doctor I was going to see. he performed 2 corneal transplants in 1991 in 1992. I am now 66 years old and just had cataract surgery in my left eye. I would not trust any other doctor but him. He is knowledgeable takes the time to explain. I have referred family members to him.

He is quiet and focused. He answers questions. If it were not for his expertise I would not be able to see. I have a degenerative eye disease and his care has enabled me to get the best vision possible. I actually tried Johns Hopkins, which conducted all the research into the disease I have but they were not able to correct my vision, only Dr Orlin and his staff have been successful.

maybe he was having a bad day?

I would not recommend going to Dr. Orlin to anyone. His bedside manner is terrible, he was very rude to me and seemed to not believe what I was telling him about my vision.I liked that he was thorough, doing an almost complete check up when I only went in for a cornea topography. That said, his attitude made me almost walk out mid-exam. I was deeply offended and hope that he was just having a bad day. Unfortunately, I'm left with no clue what's wrong with my vision and he had no plan for diagnosing it.
