  • 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.

Dr Lim has been my eye doctor for about 10 years now. He is always very professional and will take the time to sit and talk to you about what is going on with your eyes.

Great doctor if he spends enough time on you.

The place was busy for our 1st visit. We waited about 15 minutes to get into one of room and another 10 minutes before we get to see Dr. Han Lim. He examed my mom's eyes and explained every questions I have. He dialets my mom's eyes and re-exam my mom's eyes 20 minutes later. The room was cleaned and the instrument was well kept and cleaned. My mom will require an oculoplastic surgeon. Dr. Lim suggests we look for another surgeon since he is not an expert in couloplastic surgery. So we have no experience about him doing surgery at this point. But we are very satisfied about the exam he did on my mom's eyes.
