    Why choose Dr. Fishkin?

    • Comprehensive Exams - Most patients report that they never realized how complete an eye exam is supposed to be until they they were examined by Dr. Fishkin. 
    • All of your questions answered - Dr. Fishkin enjoyed educating his patients, and will not leave the room until all your questions have been answered.
    • Eye Care for the Entire Family - Dr. Fishkin is an expert at taking care of all ages - babies, children, parents, and grandparents.
    • State-of-the-art Technology - The absolute latest in exam techniques, medical therapies, lasers, and surgery are made available to our patients.
    • Electronic Medical Record - Your records will be stored in a secure digital format. This allows for e-prescribing, where your prescriptions are automatically transmitted to your pharmacy, your referring doctors will be notified immediately of the results of your exam, and your records will never be lost.
    • Advanced Ophthalmic Photography - We use slit lamp cameras and fundus cameras to capture high-resolution detailed photos of the front and the back of your eyes. These photos are available for viewing immediately, and allow for accurate comparison of changes in your eyes over time.
    • Early Glaucoma Detection and Management - We use advanced visual field and optic nerve imaging technology to detect glaucoma early enough so it can be treated before it causes symptoms. If you have glaucoma, we take into account all of the current treatments available to design a customized plan to prevent the glaucoma from progressing over time.
    • Professional Contact Lens Fittings - A proper fitting will ensure that you have great vision and are comfortable in your lenses all day long. Many patients who were told in the past that they were not a candidate for contacts are now happily wearing lenses full-time after being fit for lenses by Dr. Fishkin. We also fit children for lenses once their parents feel that they are mature enough to care for the lenses on their own.
    • Advanced LASIK - Dr. Fishkin uses technologies including wavefront and eye-tracking to ensure optimal results from LASIK.
    • Advanced Cataract Surgery - Dr. Fishkin uses the latest surgical techniques, including no-stitch surgery and the use of lenses to correct both distance as well as up close vision.
    • Cosmetic Procedures - Dr. Fishkin offers Botox to smooth out wrinkles, Latisse to make your eyelashes grow thicker and longer, colored contact lenses, and he can remove skin tags or other growths around your eyes.
