Patient Services

Glaucoma

We treat glaucoma in all stages: early, mild, moderate or end stage glaucoma, however, we specialize in the treatment of difficult glaucomas. The glaucomas that need surgical intervention.

Glaucoma

We also treat many patients who are referred to us from other ophthalmologists including many patients who have glaucoma that need surgery, or those who have had already failed surgery, or even multiple failed surgeries and have advanced disease. Many of our patients need urgent surgery to preserve their vision that they have. We see patients with very severe vision loss.

Robert Rothstein, MDOphthalmologist
“As a Neuro-Ophthalmologist I can make a real difference in the lives of people who are losing their vision. For instance, glaucoma is one of the leading causes of blindness in the United States and the world, but through medical and surgical intervention it can either be slowed down, or even cured.

Through a very careful history and examination I’m often able to arrive at new diagnosis and more appropriate treatment plans that might otherwise be overlooked.

There is a great deal of technology involved in the specialty of ophthalmology, neuro-ophthalmology and glaucoma. There is so much science that needs to be understood and needs to be integrated, but at the same time, we’re helping patients with a plethora of psychological issues that need to be integrated. That’s what really makes it an exciting field.

Vision is such an important sense of ours. It’s very psychological as well as physical. By considering my patient’s unique needs, I am able to provide a very personalized prescription.” ~ Robert Rothstein, MD

Kim Staiman Rothstein, ODOptometrist
“There are very few optometrists who are trained in glaucoma and work with a Neuro-Ophthalmologist. This is an important reason that many of my patients come to see me. It’s actually, the practice itself. I have experience helping patients with complicated and complex conditions.

I pay a great deal of attention to detail and I listen carefully to my patients to thoroughly address their concerns. That’s how I can best make a difference in the quality of their lives.

Since our practice is focused in neuro-ophthalmology and glaucoma, I see many patients who are suffering with more serious illnesses. We have more experience in that area and have a great deal of compassion for our patients because we completely understand what they are going through.

One of the unique things about eye care is that when I am evaluating a patient’s eye health, it really reflects the overall health of that individual. Unlike any other organ in the body, you can directly visualize the tissue. In this way, I have a unique opportunity to improve the overall health of my patients.” ~ Kim Staiman Rothstein, OD
