    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.

    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.

Great Experience

Dr. Oesterle performed surgery on both of my eyes to correct a muscle defect around 10 years ago (age 45). I was very pleased with her services.

Big disappointment

I have never been to a pediatric doctor that was so harsh and unprofessional. I would not recommend her especially for children. I left my appointment in awe that she chose to work with children given our experience. She was cold, impatient and very rude.

Dr. Oesterle was great

My 7 year old saw her today for a second opinion. I am glad we went. The staff was wonderful and Dr. Oesterle put me at ease. She was very honest and informative. We will be visiting again in 2 weeks for a follow up.

Unprofessional

I can not believe this physician works with children! My sons first eye doc visit was not a good one. She did not talk to my son, made him feel scared attempted to restrain him (4 yrs old) to put eye drops in before I said enough and walked out.

Doctor's Response

As a phycisian, I practice excellent medicine and try to please all my patients. Unfortunately, the second part is not always possible. I remember this patient as very few patients walk out. She was very unhappy from the moment I saw her. She has greatly misrepresented the office visit. I examined her child and spoke to the child a great deal while doing this. My medical records show that I took a vision with pictures and measured the motility. I then discussed the diagnosis with the family, gave them a handout about the medical condition and a web site to go to for further information. I explained to the parents and the child about the eyedrops. My assistant then came in to put in the eyedrops. This is when the patient walked out. The person referred to in the comments must by my assistent--a tremendous misrepresentation. I was not there to see what exactly hapened. My office if very child friendly with barking dogs and movies that can be turned on to help relax the children and give them targets for fixation. It cannot occur that I can examine a patient without takling to them. I never realy found out what this parent was so upset about.
