Specialties

Dr. John R Samples has the following 1 specialty

  • 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 was referred to Dr. Samples for a 2nd opinion and never returned to my original doctor. Dr. Samples went out of his way to treat me on a Sunday due to an ulcer in my eye that needed prompt attention. He is truly a very caring person and seems to be a real expert in his field. Also, a big lover of black labradors! P.S. I see him in the Denver area.
