  • Ophthalmology

    An ophthalmologist has the training to do much more than just prescribe glasses. They are physicians specially trained to diagnose and treat disorders of the eyes and vision. These doctors are experts on the complicated anatomy of the eye and are trained to treat eye diseases through both medical and surgical methods.
    Some common conditions that ophthalmologists treat are cataracts, glaucoma, strabismus, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration and amblyopia. In addition, ophthalmologists can provide prescriptions for eye glasses and contact lenses and perform LASIK surgery and other corrective surgeries for refractive errors like myopia (near-sightedness), hyperopia (far-sightedness), astigmatism and presbyopia.

wait time too long

Dr. Lyon is an extremely good doctor, but waiting to see her is a whole different issue. Don't make any plans to do anything once you get your appointment. I have had to wait over 4 hours to finally have her go in the room. The only reason my mom keeps on going to her is because she is very caring and shows genuine concern for her patients. The wait times need to be improved drastically.
