  • 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.

Dr Tarwater was condescending and rude!! I left my appointment in tears and had to file a formal complaint with his employer. That was my first and last appointment with him! The staff was kind but appeared leery of the Doctor. I have never seen a doctor who belittled me in the way he did. I hope no else has to experience this treatment.

He was extremely rude and not very informative. I will never see him again. He should not be practicing medicine.
