Specialties

Dr. John C Witherell 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.

In August, 2016, this astute doctor diagnosed me with a detached retina, and sent me to a retina specialist to schedule emergency surgery at Wills Eye Hospital to save my vision.

Now, having come full circle with retina surgery, I developed cataracts, as a result of the surgery. Returning to Dr. Witherill, he removed my cataracts, and inserted a lens in each eye, eliminating my nearsightedness & the need to wear glasses to see at a distance! Having worn glasses for 55 of my 59 years, I can honestly say Dr. Witherill is a MIRACLE WORKER!! Not only did he save my vision, it is now better than ever! You are in the very best hands if you see this wonderful doctor!!
