Dr. Thierry J Hufnagel has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

At first he seemed a little distant and quick, but he just doesn't waste time chit chatting, hence almost no wait time for his appointments! (Compared to a 45 minute wait for a different dr in the office) turns out he is extremely thourough and honest with your outlook and WILL give you that time, just not wasteful conversation time. I really like him and will recommend! So glad I got him as my surgeon!

Very professional

Have been a patient for many years and will continue with him. Not very talkative, but knows his profession and I trust him. Have had some serious eye problems, and he has managed to keep them to a minimum .
