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 have had multiple cosmetic procedures with Dr. Burroughs and his staff. They were so knowledgeable and helpful that I felt comfortable going from Fractura and Forma for skin tightening for my neck and face, to ThermiVia, for post menopausal vaginal symptoms,such as dryness. The ThermiVia has made a huge difference in my vaginal health. I have gotten many compliments on generally looking more youthful and healthy! Many thanks to Dr. Burroughs and his wonderful staff- especially Megan and Mychelle, who performed most of the procedures.
My mother is 87 years old and was having trouble reading. Her eyelids had lost tension, causing her eyelashes to roll inside her eye socket next to her eyeball and this irritated her eyes to extent that she could not keep them open, Dr Burroughs identified the problem quickly and scheduled surgery promptly. He was very gentle and caring with my mom. The surgery was a total success and now my mom is reading prolifically again. I am grateful to Dr. Burroughs for improving my mom's quality of life. He took time answer our questions and that really reduced our anxiety about having the surgery,
Dr. Burroughs, a very kind and considerate physician who is capable and willing to take on mistakes that another physician caused comes highly recommended. I had nerve damage on my forehead and Dr. Burroughs balanced both eyelids as well as forehead after a botched, very expensive face lift. Dr. Burroughs enlightened me about less expensive, non-operative procedures. I appreciated his honest and integrity about what he could do without further surgical damage and that impressed me. He does what is best for the patient, not his pocketbook.
