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. Baveja is the BEST! She is so patient and kind. I hadn't been to an ophthalmologist in years because of bad experiences. She explained every step and it's purpose. She showed me the photos of my optic nerve and explained how she would track changes for signs of glaucoma. I got fitted for glasses there as well. The woman who helped me explained proper fit and which glasses would look best. I recommend her to everyone.
My vision had deteriorated rapidly over the past two to three years due to cataract formation in both eyes. I needed my eyes evaluated and appropriately treated. I researched for the best opthalmologist who I could entrust my vision and my health and found Dr. Gitanjali Baveja. Dr. Baveja is a well trained, surgically competent ophthalmologist with impeccable credentials who came to me highly recommended. I started seeing her in her office in Arlington where she was always exact, educative and concerned about my eyes and cataract problem. I followed her to her new office in Ashburn because of her capabilities and the confidence that she had imparted on me. I live in D.C.but do not mind driving out to Ashburn, Va. to see Dr.Baveja. In 2011 Dr. Baveja removed both of my cataracts flawlessly and implanted lenses. The results have been fantastic. I will continue to see her and recommend her.
One of the most caring and intelligent doctors I have ever met. I came to see her because my eye was red and painful. I thought I was going blind. She was able to see me immediately as well as take time to explain what was going on. Now, my eye is back to normal.I highly recommend her without any reservation!
I would not recommend Dr. Baveja to anyone. We saw her in her Ashburn office. We felt rushed, and she did not answer our questions in a clear way that we could understand even after asking the same questions repeatedly. We walked out of her office feeling more confused and upset than when we went in. She left us completely hanging. In addition, after seeing another cornea specialist who gave a very thorough, comprehensive exam, we not only got a completely different diagnosis and course of treatment than Dr. Baveja had come up with, but we got all of our questions answered in a clear manner. I am actually glad that we did not follow up with her care and were able to find a more competent, caring doctor. Dr. Baveja does not seem to really care about her patients, nor does she seem to respect them as people. I would definitely not trust her with the care of my eyes.
