A message from Dr. Landzberg
"One only has one pair of eyes, and it is of utmost importance to take care of them properly! This includes regular eye examinations to monitor the health of eyes, using protective eyewear and wearing sunglasses. As a Glaucoma specialist, I cannot stress this enough. Glaucoma is one of several asymptomatic conditions that can be detected by routine eye examination. With proper treatment, glaucoma patients can retain their vision throughout their lifetimes.
It has been my pleasure getting to know all our patients and their families. One of the nice things about ophthalmology is that we get to treat patients of all ages. There is one family of which I take care of four generations! It is very gratifying to improve and restore people’s vision with cataract surgery. I look forward to helping each patient see as well as is possible."
