• peripheral vision
• pupillary response
• external orbit

If a contact lens prescription is desired, this must be specified when your appointment is made as this will require extra time and special evaluation.

“I’ve been a patient of Dr. Herz for about two years. A year ago she performed cataract surgery on both of my eyes. The surgery went well and the recovery was excellent. I returned last week for a follow-up visit. I am ultra pleased with Dr. H. and her staff who are professional and caring. Dr. H. is a caring and friendly doctor. She is easy to talk to and never makes the patient feel rushed. When in the office, one feels like a friend rather than a patient. I have recommended other people to Dr. H. and they are equally enamored with her.”
