Dr. Wagners' treatment is better than Johns' Hopkins Wilmer Eye Institute. I had received Eylea treatment at JH before receiving it from Dr. Wagner. My vision has improved under Dr.Wagner beyond what JH had told me would ever happen. In addition, Dr. Wagner prescribes a monitoring divice which can be used at home that detects early activity even beter than the state-of-the-art diagnostic photography in any doctors office.. Furthermore, anyone with "dry" macular degeneration should be seeing Dr. Wagner for monitoring because, unfortuntely, a lot of general opthmalogis don't prescribe the at-home monitor. I referred friends of mine to Dr. Wagner and they love him too.

Capable, friendly, very professional staff. Treatment rooms are clean, comfortable, and attractive throughout. Always a pleasant visit from check-in to check-out. Although a great many patients are typically seen here each day, my visits have never felt rushed and I have always received personalized attention. I would not consider going anywhere else for this medical specialty.

Oct 2, 2018 Dr. Wagner operated on my eye for a torn and detaching retina. My results were good considering before surgery I had 90% black wall in that eye. My vision is back, though not as good as before the retina tear. I’m very myopic, but I can read with that eye. I am happy with Dr Wagner and his staff. I believe you will be also.
