Dr. Binder is a board-certified ophthalmologist practicing adult comprehensive ophthalmology including cataract surgery, strabismus surgery, and management of a wide variety of medical eye problems. He takes pride in treating each patient as a unique individual, tailoring their care for the best possible results, and taking the time to explain complex medical issues in plain language.
