Dr. Ziel's bio
This content was provided by Dr. Ziel "ABOUT ME I work at the Duke Eye Center in Winston Salem, NC. I specialize in the surgical treatment of cataracts and glaucoma care. Cataract surgery can now be used to help patients see better without glasses. I use toric lens that treat astigmatism, and use multifocal lens that help people see far and near without glasses after cataract surgery. I also do laser cataract surgery. By talking to my patients I can help them determine which lens will give them the vision they want after cataract surgery. I also specialize in diagnosis and treatment of glaucoma using eye drops, laser treatment and surgery when necessary. I like to involve my patients in their care so that I can provide the best care for them and achieve the outcomes they desire. I was a nurse before becoming a doctor. This has helped me be a better listener so that I can understand what my patients need and want. LANGUAGES I SPEAK English"
