Dr. Stephen C Perrone 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.

I had a scheduled appointment for 1 pm for Lasik consultation. I was there on time. I went to the receptionist to notify them that I had a scheduled appointment. Being that it was my first time there, I figured that they would ask for my name. Nevertheless, they just told me to have a seat with a few other patients that were waiting. An hour and twenty-five minutes later, as patients that came well after me were called in, and subsequently finished, I asked the receptionist about my status. She said that it will be 5 more minutes. I figured that I took the time out from work to go there, so I might as well wait. Just as I was going to walk out; after 10 minutes, they had me sit in the section of the waiting room, where they check your eyesight. (Side note: I should have trusted my first instinct, when I saw that in the waiting room they treat patients, and where they use a box of tissues for sanitary purposes) They then sent me into one of the examination rooms. There, an employee of this practice tested my eyesight. Part of the process, they inserted a couple of different eye drops into my eyes, and let me know to keep my eyes closed for a couple of minutes till the doctor would see me. 25 minutes later... still no doctor appeared. All a while, I hear him treat additional patients that came nearly an hour and a half after I had. At this point, I decided to not wait to be seen by the doctor, and I walked out. In conclusion, I would definitely not recommend someone to this office. As someone, much like others, I am sure, that may be a little nervous about undergoing the Lasik procedure. So I would have liked to feel like their doctor and office cares an ounce about their patients. Here they clearly (pun intended), they do not. Disclaimer: I don't have experience with being treated by this doctor, as I was not given the opportunity. p.s. I know can imagine how doctor's offices in third world countries operate.
