  • 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.

In Disbelief

Me and my husband have been taking my son to see Dr. Kehler for the past three months to correct his lazy eye. Which he has improved tremendously! Vision at a 20/40. She then recommended we talk to a surgeon for further options. (Dr. Donahue or Dr. Morrison) We chose Morrison because he was in the same office. We entered the appointment with great confidence and our son did a great job with the nurse and answering all her questions. But as soon as Morrison entered the room the entire mood changed. Our son was very quiet and intimidated by Dr. Morrison. Morrison was very forceful and didn't not give us any other option other than surgery. Dr. Kehler informed us surgery was not likely in his future and we feel like all of our options were not addressed. When we asked him the risks....all he said is "Death". You can pretty much predict how the rest of the appointment went. He did not spend a lot of time with us, maybe 10 mintues. In conclusion, we will be getting a second opinion for Dr. Donahue hopefully in a few days. I do not recommend taking children to Dr. Morrison and we are in hopes something will be done about him in the near future.

Worst Medical Experience Ever

My child with Sensory Processing Disorder was nervous and not wanting to participate in exam - back turned to dr. The dr grabbed his arm and leg to jerk him around and force him to comply. Of course this upset my son to which the doctor began to berate him. This was by far the worst experience we have ever had with a medical provider and will never take any of our family members to this clinic in the future. Our son is now scared to go to the doctor.

Don't talk properly

He spent 3 minutes only. He had not allowed us to ask questions. Was serious, and not friendly.
