Specialties

Dr. Edward Chaum has the following 1 specialty

  • 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.

Patient

My 87 year old Mother is a patiet of Dr. Chaum. We trired another Specility Group in memphis and grew to hate the facility. Dr. Chaum is very professional. On time and very concious to detail. I love the fact he draps my Mother prior to each injection. This was not practiced at the other group. He is a true professional when it comes to my Mother and her Maculaur Degeneration Wet Eye Injections.
