Michael Steiner, MD

Dr. Steiner received both his undergraduate and medical degrees from Cornell University before completing medical and surgical internship and ophthalmology residency and sub-specialty training in oculoplastic surgery. His practice has attracted many seeking improvement in the appearance of their eyelids, as well as victims of eye injuries, and those who have already had eyelid procedures are seeking improvement of the results.  All surgeries are performed with the assistance of oral sedation; a safer alternative to general anesthesia.
With the help of capable and compassionate staff, Dr.Steiner’s experience, knowledge, and meticulous attention to details are called upon in the management of cataracts, diabetic eye disease, glaucoma, and macular degeneration.
