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.

Almost 51 years ago, I selected my first pair of glasses and 8 years later, was fitted with my initial contacts. For the next 43 years, I daily reached for my glasses before getting out of bed, exchanged them for contacts as I readied for the day and returned to glasses at night. Until 6 months ago, I was captive to that routine. It was all to drastically change when my optometrist recommended Dr. Shatz at Sight Trust. After the initial exam, cataract surgery was suggested and Dr. Shatz patiently explained options and the associated procedures. Surgery was then scheduled. Athough I was incredibly anxious when arriving for surgery, Dr. Marrotte put me at ease with gentle efficiency during the prepping. The 10 minute procedure was comfortably completed by Dr. Shatz before I returned to the professional, compassionate care of Dr. Marrotte for follow-up directions and the answering of all my questions. With the second eye and every subsequent appointment, I could not have asked for a more professional and caring experience. From the receptionist to technicians to doctors, the entire staff took time to provide information and to answer any and all questions. I am forever grateful to Dr. Shatz and his incredible staff! My 20/60 vision has been transformed to a glass-less, non-contact 20/20. Thank you, Dr. Shatz, Dr. Marrotte and everyone at Sight Trust for taking such great care of my gift of sight!!
