Dr. George Panagakis has the following 1 specialty
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.

During the process of researching for an ophthalmologist and then following through with the recommendation of a colleague, I discovered that Dr. P is the only ophthalmologist in the history of the University of Illinois College of Medicine in Urbana-Champaign to have received the Golden Apple Award. I understand that this award is given once a year to "a faculty member who has provided distinguished teaching and who represents the highest of professional ideals." I will not settle for anything less for my eyes.
