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.

Thank you so very much for taking the time to meet me at your office Sunday to check a concern I had with my left eye. After examining me you referred me to an excellent eye surgeon who repaired my cornia the very next day. I'm home on the mend thanks to both of you. God bless you both for the wonderful, caring work you do. I'm ever grateful.
Extremely rude and uncaring physician. Wait time was long, almost half an hour after I checked in was I taken care of by the staff. The doctor herself was arrogant and seemed to not care for my eyes. I have been having deteriorating eyesight for the past two years and went to Dr Fitzgerald hoping for some help, but she impolitely dismissed my concerns and repeated interrupted me. Not interested in patient care at all and her bedside manner towards me was condescending to the point of being downright rude. Avoid Dr Fitzgerald at all costs.
