    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.

One Star

I was referred to him because he was supposed to be one of the best. However he considers himself so important that it is necessary for patients to wait an hour or more to see him. When shots are necessary there is between 30 minutes and one hour to wait to be escorted into a large room with around ten or so other patients and lined up like an assembly line for him to walk down the line and give shots in the necessary eye that has been marked over the brow by one of the staff so he does not have to waste his precious time speaking.

Four Stars

I consider myself fortunate to be receiving the excellent care of Dr. Banes, and being able to afford the expensive tretment. I am prabably recovering satisfactorily from eye surgery, but would like an explanation of the symstoms I'md having: How long will it take for the dark, round shadow to diaappear from my eye? Why am I having so many large floaters that obscure my sight? Is my other eye supposed to be effected by surgery in left eye? (Vision not as sharp) Will resume injections in my other eye wet AMD eye? Can one of your assistants send me an email about these matters?

Non treated Glaucoma

I was referred to this office for retina check. My eyes are complicated and the staff had difficulty reading my eye pressure and took it over and over and over. Dr. Bains documented that my eye pressure was very high but only told me to follow up with my regular eye doctor. During that time my optic nerve was being damaged and after years of no one treating my glaucoma although I was seeing an someone every 6 months I'm now blind in my right eye. My wife asked Dr. Bains about a second opinion and he was arrogant and said he was the best anywhere and had state of the art equipment so we didn't need a second opinion. It's a good thing we didnt listen to him and went to Houston where he was immediately treated and had surgery for advanced glaucoma. His equipment was clearly not accurate enough to read eye pressure correctly and we DID need a second opinion. Stay away from this office if you don't want to go blind! We got a copy of my recorded and there are several obvious mistakes such as dictating one thing When the tests showed something else. We will never go back.
