Tag Archives: Heed Ophthalmic Foundation

Since many elderly people live in Florida (ranked by WalletHub among the top states for retirees last year based), we like to focus on health and wellness for that demographic here as well. Finding the right physicians can be as time consuming as finding the best accommodation, so research has to be undertaken.  Here, we will look at eye care and the elderly with a focus on one specialist in the area: Dr. Alan Mendelsohn MD. F.A.C.S. – Miami Ophthalmologist.

Having been an ophthalmologist and eye surgeon in Broward County for more than two decades, Mendelsohn has become an expert in his treatment of a variety of eye-related issues, which are especially common as one ages.  His list includes: cataracts, corneal surgery, glaucoma and ophthalmology.  Having graduated from Northwestern University’s Honors Program in medical education, he was thereafter honored by the Heed Ophthalmic Foundation as one of America’s 10 most outstanding ophthalmologists.  Further, Dr. Alan Mendelsohn has received Heed’s “Top Doctor” Award for 12 consecutive years and his colleagues have termed him a “Doctor’s Doctor.”

As one ages, it becomes increasingly necessary to make regular specialist doctor appointments.  The earlier one detects conditions like diabetic eye and glaucoma via physicians such as Mendelsohn, the more treatable they are.
