Patient Comments (2)
in Lynbrook, NY |
My wife has been a patient of Dr. Lichtenstein since Nov., 2016. She was referred to him by a neuro-ophthalmologist because of a condition causing strabismus following prior surgery to remove a pterygium in August. He performed the surgery and she experienced immediate relief though it is beginning to grow back again. He is working with us on a plan of action to continue to deal with this matter. We have very high regard for this doctor and would not hesitate to recommend him to others.

Excellent! Went to see him for my strabismus eyes . Dr Lichtenstein explained to me thoroughly about the procedure and what should I expect from beginning to end . I would highly recommend him for his professionalism and his work. I am very satisfied with my procedure and the way I am healing ..
