The best eye doctor by far. Went to many and only he was able to diagnosis a congenital issue I had with my eyes. After two coronial transplants I was able to play golf again! I would recommend Dr Raber to anyone seeking a eye Doctor!!!

Dr. Raber is outstanding! I had DSEK cornea transplants in both eyes due to Fuchs' dystrophy back in 2010. In my case he did cataract surgery at the same time. He also did capsulotomy on both eyes later as well as diagnosing and referring me to a retina specialist for a PVD. I had follow-ups...more
