"Providing patient satisfaction and care are my primary concerns. My goal is to provide the most recent, sophisticated, and safe technological innovations to a large number of people, giving them remarkable opportunities to restore or improve their vision."

James R. Waldman, MD is a comprehensive ophthalmologist. Given his interest in technological innovations, his practice has a focus on refractive surgery, LASIK, lens implants and astigmatism.

"In my practice, I emphasize technology to improve surgical outcomes. I only use well-tested technology because safety and caution are an important part of achieving the best outcomes that will last a long time."

Preparing for your Visit:

Prior to Your Appointment: Please complete and print the Patient history, HIPPA and payment policy forms even if you are an established patient. Once you have completed the forms, please bring them with you on the day of your appointment. Due to privacy issues, please do not attempt to send these forms to our office via e-mail.

Please check with your insurance company(s) to verify your “vision care” coverage for routine eye examinations by calling the customer service phone number listed on your insurance card. You may also call this same number to verify “medical” benefits for medically necessary visits and procedures.

The Day of Your Appointment:
Bring your current medical insurance card(s) with you.

  • The co-pay amount listed on your insurance card will be collected at the time of your visit.
  • For charges not covered by your individual insurance plan, payment is due at the time of service. Prompt pay discounts are available on certain services. Please ask at the front desk.

As part of your examination with us today, your pupils may be dilated. With dilation, most people experience light sensitivity and difficulty with near vision (such as reading). Some individuals also have difficulty seeing in the distance. The effects of the dilation can last several hours.
