Dr. John M Galasso Jr has the following 1 specialty
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.

John M. Galasso is outstanding doctor and surgeon! Two years ago I was diagnosed â severe retina detachment, so I could not see anything with my left eye â I was facing blindness with my left eye! I donât think all ophthalmologists would now exactly what and what should be done in such very complicated case. But fortunately Dr. J.M. Galasso was highly recommended to me and I visited him in Eye clinic in Des Plaines. His professional approach and great experience gave me a hope. And then after four surgeries performed by Dr. J.M. Galasso during whole year my vision in left eye was returned to me. There was detachment in my right eye too and he performed two surgeries on that eye also. Now I can see so much better like several years ago-before that happened to me. And retina in my both eyes is in stable condition. I am writing this with confidence - he is the BEST ophthalmologist / surgeon ever known! NO doubt - 100% recommended to anyone with retina problems!
