  • 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.

Would absolutely Never Recommend

My exam and subsequent visits with this office were less than satisfactory and completely uncomfortable. The office staff was always rude and seemed extremely uninterested in answering any of my questions. Dr. Cahan spoke very little to me in the few minutes he spent during my exam. He did not listen to my needs, experience, or expectations for care or about contact lenses and prescription. Additionally he wouldn't explain the decisions he was making. As a patient, I deserve to feel heard and well-informed and I didn't receive this care by any means.

Doctor is great with children.

I have been seeing Dr. Cahan for many years, and I have always felt he is a great doctor. When my 6 year old son, Jason, began experiencing problems seeing, I of course took him to see Dr. Cahan. Dr. Cahan was amazing. He spoke to Jason in a way that put him at ease immediately. Jason actually enjoyed his eye exam. He loves his new glasses and now sees everything. It's obvious Dr. Cahan enjoys working with children.

an extremely positive experience

My experience with Dr. Cahan and his office staff has always been extremely positive. I enjoy it being a smaller office. Everyone knows who I am, and I receive personal attention. The staff is friendly and very helpful. Amy, the receptionist, is always cheerful. Dr. Cahan is very knowledgeable and concerned, and he doesn't hesitate to spend time with me. His surgical skill is amazing. I highly recommend this office.
