Specialties

Dr. Evan A Ballard 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.

Top Notch Doctor

I was born with a very rare genetic eye disease. Originally it was diagnosed as retinitis pigmentosa primarily because it presented with night blindness. It was later found to be a very rare eye disorder known as congenital stationary night blindness type one. In addition to night blindness I have a myriad of other symptoms including severe myopia, astigmatism, bilateral strabismus (esotropia in both eyes), lateral nystagmus, and amblyopia of the left eye among other things. Dr. Ballard preformed bilateral medial rectus resection and re-implantation surgery to correct my esotropia in both eyes leaving me with a very slight lingering esotropia in my left eye, this is a very good outcome for this surgery considering how bad my strabismus was originally. In addition to preforming surgery on me I have been seeing Dr. Ballard twice a year for the last twenty years. I would not recomend another doctor to take care of children affected by eye disorders. Even in my case, having a genetic disability that Dr. Ballard, nor any other doctor in has practice, had never seen before and has never seen since my diagnosis in 1990, Dr.Ballard did everything he could to mitigate the debilitating effects of my disease. I am sure that another physician could have done as good a job but I am confident in saying that no physician could have done a better job. I will recommend him to anyone who asks.
