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. Passons is a caring, kind physician and excellent surgeon! He always has a positive attitude and is so happy to see his patients. He performed an emergency procedure on me one weekend and I was so grateful to get relief right away. I have had no problems with my eye after the procedure. He truly gives the best care to his patients and their families. We are blessed to have such a caring professional physician and surgeon in this era of "managed care". Dr. Passons does not need to have anyone show him how to care for patients: it is in his nature to give excellent care because he loves what he does and truly has a heart for his patients' well being. I have had several family members and friends who have been under Dr. Passons' care and they all are extremely satisfied with the care Dr. Passons gives and highly recommends him as I do. May God bless Dr. Passons and his staff as they continue to provide superior patient care.
