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.

I was referred to Dr. Cole for cataract surgery. The outcome is amazing. My vision is better than I could have ever dreamed and I was equally impressed by the time Dr. Cole took with me to explain everything, and to make sure that my priorities were addressed. He was able to replicate the monovision effect I had with my contact lense prescription, only even better, such that my right eye is slightly undercorrected, eliminating the need for glasses even for reading. His staff is also extremely patient, courteous and helpful
