    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.

Retina Surgery

I went to Dr. Phillpots with blurred vision. He diagnosed the problem as two detached retinas. Shortly afterwards he performed two retina operations on my left and right eyes one week apart. He is very personable and explained in detail the procedure and what to expect after surgery. Thanks to God and the expertise of Dr. Phillpots my eyes healed and I had no loss of vision! I would highly recommend Dr. Phillpots, his staff and St. Luke's Institute.

Dr. Phillpotts recently saved my eyesight in the right eye by surgical procedure. I suffer with diabetic retinopathy. He has guided my care for almost three years. He is an excellent ophthalmologist (I have had three), and I recommend him and St.l Luke's highly.
