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.

Found a great "old-fashioned" doctor.

Great staff. Great doctor; didn't delegate basic tasks to a bunch of "assistants"; took the time to figure out what was wrong and actually offerred low-cost treatment alternatives...AND followed up until I was well.
