Cataract & Implant Surgery

Dr. Allen Fishman established his practice of Ophthalmology in 1980 with a goal of delivering the highest quality eye care in the New York community. His philosophy has always been to provide personal and expert care to all his patients. That is why Dr. Fishman examines, counsels and treats all his patients personally. This includes all preoperative as well as postoperative care.

Dr. Fishman has been in the forefront of the most significant advances of Cataract & Implant Microsurgery. He routinely performs cataract surgery in only 15-20 minutes, with no stitches, no bleeding and the most advanced foldable implants through the smallest of incisions. His patients return home 1/2 hour after surgery and are transferred to and from surgery by courtesy limousine.

Dr. Fishman's specialized surgical techniques allow the patients to resume their normal, everyday activities within 1-2 days, if not immediately. This is in contrast to older procedures in which healing and the resumption of normal activities takes several weeks to months.

Glaucoma *Diabetic Eye Care* Adults & Pediatrics

Dr. Fishman provides a full range of ophthalmic care, including diagnosis and laser treatment for Diabetic Retinopathy. Diabetic patients run the risk of blindness from retinal damage associated with their disease. This is preventable with the regular checkups along with the timely use of in-office laser treatments when indicated.

Glaucoma is another eye condition that leads to blindness when not discovered and treated in a timely fashion. The use of new, easy to use medications as well as advanced in-office laser techniques can prevent the devastating effects of this dangerous eye disease. Only regular evaluations by a board-certified ophthalmologist such as Dr. Allen Fishman, can prevent the blindness associated with Glaucoma.

Dr. Fishman has the latest state-of the art laser equipment to treat these conditions

Laser Surgery for Nearsightedness

Reduce your need and dependence on glasses

Dr. Allen Fishman has been treating nearsightedness since 1993, initially, with RK surgery, the Russian procedure to eliminate nearsightedness, and since 1997 with the newest Laser procedure PRK or Photorefractive Keratotomy.

PRK is a painless procedure that takes only minutes to perform. It will permanently reduce or eliminate the need for nearsighted glasses or contact lenses in 90-95% of his patients. This means being able to drive without glasses or contact lenses as well as perform most daily activities including sports without aid of corrective lenses.

Consultations are free, and as always, Dr. Fishman examines, counsels and treats all patients personally.
