Get to know, Dr. Steven J. Kanoff, Ophthalmologist Philadelphia, PA

There has hardly been a day in the 20+ years of practicing ophthalmology in Philadelphia where Dr. Kanoff wasn’t looking forward to seeing his patients.

“I consider it a privilege to help the wonderful people of Philadelphia with their eye care needs,” explained Dr. Kanoff.  “It is a daily pleasure to practice ophthalmology with the talented team of ophthalmologists and optometrists at Ophthalmology Physicians & Surgeons.”

Over the years, while practicing as an ophthalmologist in the Philadelphia area, Dr. Kanoff has developed a special interest in helping patients with medical eye conditions such as glaucoma, macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy.  “If you’ve been diagnosed with a serious eye condition, you’ll want to seek out the most advanced treatment with a very experienced ophthalmologist,” stated Dr. Kanoff.  “It’s important for me to provide the highest quality, total vision care to my patients. I use state-of-the-art equipment and diagnostic tools, in the most caring and compassionate manner possible, always striving for each patient to have a completely positive experience.” Dr. Kanoff also works with cataract patients delivering pre and post-surgical care.

Regardless of the nature of your required eye care, from routine visits to the treatment of serious eye conditions, Dr. Kanoff and Ophthalmology Physicians & Surgeons provide complete medical ophthalmology services to the Philadelphia, PA community. 

“I’m proud that I have helped thousands of people in Philadelphia regain, preserve and enhance their eyesight with quality and compassionate care.”
