  • 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.

Great Doctor

I have been going to Dr. Bello for over 10 years and have been very happy. This year I brought my 5 year old for her first eye exam. She was a little nervous but Dr. Bello and the staff were great with her. When we left the office she asked when we get to come back for another eye appointment!

Five Stars

As a physician myself I know the docs who really care ( or don't) about their patients. Let me say that I have had the distinct pleasure of being Dr Bello' s patient for the last 10 years, and he is the kindest, most thorough, compassionate physician I have ever met. Dr Bello is down to earth and you always have the feeling that he has all the time in the world to really talk and discuss whatever needs to be addressed. I have sent my entire family to him and would trust him to do the right thing without hesitation. He is fantastic!!

Dr John Bello

I had literally lost faith in Doctors - over many years I have had nothing but negative experiences in many, many different ways with all my Doctors. Dr Bello has renewed my faith, I trust him. Great bedside manner, kind and informative, very well run (large) office.

Very fast and helpful

I am a carpenter and I cut wood with table saws on a daily basis, on one morning I was not wearing safety glasses and I got wood fragments stuck into my eye. I immeadtly called my wife and told her that it was serious and I needed to be seen by a doctor. After browsing the Internet my wife called me back with a number for dr. Bellos office. I called and explained my situation to the lady who answered my call. She was extremely caring over the phone and told me to come in as soon as I could. Arriving shortly 15 minutes later, I was greeted with friendly staff, filled out brief paperwork, then I was on my way to the exam room where the technician checked my eyes. Shortly after dr.bello came in and said he would have to remove the wood fragments from my eye. He explained to me that I wouldn't have to worry due to he has done this numerous times. Before I knew it he said he was all done and gave me some eye drops. The caring atmosphere made me feel very comfortable and I would recommend dr.bello to anyone. Not only because of how precise and good dr.bello was but the entire staff that I was with was extremely helpful and courteous with the questions I had about my insurance. Thanks dr. Bello

The Best Eye Doctor you can find

My visit with Dr. Bello was a wonderful experience. Everybody in this office was very friendly and helpful. I was very impressed with the openness of the people, and the way they treat patients - which is RARE in medical world - they treated me as a real person with individual needs, not just another patient - they are driven by passion that's for sure. They took the time to help me. I learned a lot about my eyes, all my questions and concerns were explained, which made me feel safe and in good hands. Dr. Bello is a great doctor, and the one to go to take care of your eyes. I highly recommend him!
