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 wary of the prospect of having a shot put into my eye and I have to say that the "unknown" aspect was more tramatic than the procedure! Dr.Wells is very skilled in the distraction of your attention followed by ease of placement to whit you are told it is over when you didn't even realize it had begun! I have had extremely positive results from this treatment and am thrilled with his knowledge.
I have been going to Dr. Wells for over a year now with major problems. Macular hole, etc. He is extremely professional, thorough, and pleasant. His office staff is efficient. I had surgery on my macular hole and everything went smoothly with excellent care and follow-up. I highly recommend this doctor.
