Specialties

  • Ophthalmology

    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.

Love Dr Atkinson

I love Dr Atkinson. He's friendly and a great with the kids. You have to understand that he is the ONLY pediatric ophthalmologist in about a 300 mile radius so he is extremely busy and sees A LOT of patients. Therefore your wait time is going to be great but he's a good doctor who cares about his patients and always takes the time to make sure you understand the diagnosis.

Dr. Atkinson, does not have patience to listen to the parents concerns and pushes you in and out. The wait to go to a room is over an hour.
