Important Announcement: We've partnered with ReFocus Eye Health to best focus on providing the best patient care possible. Of course, our doctors and staff will remain the same but our name, logo, and website will be updated as we integrate with the ReFocus family of eye clinics. This will not affect your appointments or your patient experience in the least. 

Important Annoucement: Our Blue Bell clinic is now closed. All patients from that office will be seen at our state-of-the-art North Wales location, where they can expect the same caliber of exceptional eye care and patient experience. This location is only 6 miles away and has ample parking.

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.”
