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. Avallone was the fourth doctor my husband and I had seen with our then 6 year old son. We had not been satisfied with the service or received a logical diagnosis until going to Dr. Avallone. Two of the doctors we saw were through Children's Hospital. The staff is friendly, the wait time in minimal, great location. Dr. Avallone is a natural with kids. My son's vision has actually improved under Dr. Avallone's care for the past 4.5 years.
I have seen Dr. Avallone over 5 times in the last 6 months for my 3 year old son who had some problems with the muscles of his eyes. Dr. Avallone spent well over 2 hours with us on our first visit where he discovered that my son's eye problems were much more severe and more neurologic in nature. He immediately called Children;s National and within hours we were with the head neurosurgeon there to discuss further testing and treatment. Since then he has been a wonderful advocate for my son and shows he cares so much for his paatients and their families as we plow through the medical community searching for answers. I woud highly recommend Dr. Avallone to ANYONE!
My daughter had eye surgery in 2007. Dr. Avallone took time to explain the procedure and answer all questions that we had. He had an excellent bedside manner. The surgery was in the morning and he called that evening to see how his patient was doing. I was very impressed with his genuine interest and expertise.
