Ophthalmology is a branch of medicine and surgery, which deals with the diagnosis and treatment of eye disorders. Ophthalmologists are experts in the diseases, functions, and anatomy of the eye. They may provide routine care such as vision testing, as well as prescribe and fit eyeglasses or contact lenses. However, ophthalmologists are also surgeons. They repair traumatic injuries to the eye and perform cataract, glaucoma, and corneal surgery.
Active in her community, Dr. Fisher volunteers her time at the annual Wills Eye Hospital screening and at Holy Redeemer Hospital, both in the Women’s Health Center and by providing a diabetic lecture series. She carries the distinctive honor of being voted one of Philadelphia’s Top Doctors by Philadelphia Magazine.
