Ophthalmology is a branch of medicine and surgery, which deals with the diagnosis and treatment of eye disorders. Ophthalmologists are experts in the diseases, functions, and anatomy of the eye. Ophthalmologists are also surgeons. They repair traumatic injuries to the eye and may perform cataract, glaucoma, and corneal surgery. Dr. Weisz’s practice is limited to medical and surgical disease of the retina, the light sensing tissue at the back of the eye, and to uveitis, infectious and inflammatory diseases of the eye.
With over 25 years of experience in his field, Dr. Weisz has been the recipient of the Castle Connolly Regional Top Doctor Award, Connecticut Magazine Top Doctor Award, and New York Magazine Top Doctor Award. He has also been mentioned in Moffy Media Magazines from 2018 through 2021.
