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.

Misdiagnosed me and has poor attitude . Choose another doctor , if possible . By the way , it’s been four years, His diagnosis is still incorrect .
Deliberately misleading and unethical billing practices! I went to Bascon Palmer to see Dr. Byron Lam. I knew there would be hospital fees AND the fees from the doctor and I tried calling to find out what those fees would be in advance. I called billing, I called the doctor's scheduling department, I asked when I was physically there and no one was able to give me a quote. Not even a ballpark. I got the bill 2 months later and noticed I was being charge for my visual field test twice so I called to correct the issue. I was told that I was being charge for the right to use the machine and again for actually using it. The bill also said "and other diagnostic tests" even though I only had a visual field and nothing else. When I tried to explain to the billing representative that one should not be charged twice for the SAME thing, she said that she had worked there for 24 years and has been yelled at by every patient she has spoken with. She literally told me the last phone call she had, the woman hung up on her for the exact same thing. Notice that if there are 24 consecutive years of complaints, there is clearly a problem. I will NEVER return to this facility. I hope my doctor will some day move to a different facility but if not, oh well, I'll just find a different neuro-opthamologist. Even if that means flying back to NY for my original doctor. That would have literally been cheaper due to the unethical billing practices conducted by Bascon Palmer Institute at the University of Miami Health System.
