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 been taking my Mom to her eye appointments with Dr. Welch for the past two years. We both dread going to this office. Dr. Welch's bedside manner leaves little to be desired and his office personnel are some of the unhappiest people I have ever encountered. Unfortunately, he's the closest doctor with experience in the retina field, therefore we are forced to keep going back. My mom and I are both looking forward to the day when we won't have to go back again.
