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.

Dr Guarnieri was referred to me by a friend of his years ago. I was so pleased with him and his ability to solve the problems of the eye. I have been sending my family and friends to him ever since. My son in law has a inherited disease of the eye and sometimes has to put patches on his eye and stay in darkness for days on end. I didn't like what I saw and wasn't sure what exactly he had so I sent him to Good ole Dr Guarnieri.. That was in 2003. My son in law has not had his eye flare up ever since. Not saying the disease is gone. But whatever he did on that visit and the follow ups. Done the job. Thank you Doc.
