Dr. Jerry R Blair 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.

I needed emergent care for a retinal tear and he was willing to do it by the end of the day, more than once, as we had to travel a distance to see him. Although the wait was sometimes lengthy, I realize that he does treat others, like he did me-- when I needed it. When it was my turn he didn't hurry but took time to answer all of my questions. The staff was good at preparing me so that when the doctor was ready, all of the prep work was done.
