Dr. Wilson Ko 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.

Dr. Ko has been my ophthalmologist for the past 9 years. Together, with the efforts of Peter Wesley, a retinal surgeon at New York Eye and Ear Infirmary, they have worked hard to save my vision. Although, through the years my medical insurance has changed, when asked, I always request Dr. Ko. Simply said, I will not e parted from a ophthalmologist who carefully listens to my concerns and addresses each one leaving me feeling confident I made the right choice in choosing him.
I got to my appointment at 10:45am. About 25 minutes later, one of the receptionists called me up to give my insurance card, etc. I asked her if I'd be out by 12:30pm and she gave me a definitive no. ?? So, my appointment was going to take over 2 hours. The office does not respect your time and that you have other things to do in your life besides sit in their office all day. The receptionist acted like I was ridiculous for thinking that I wouldn't have to wait for hours til my appointment was over. So after wasting my morning at the office, I was forced to leave without seeing the opthalmologist because I couldn't cancel all my other plans for the rest of the day.
