Dr. Mark A Melamed 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.

If I listened to Dr Melamed I would've lost the sight in my left eye. I had symptoms of a retinal tear and he looked and said I did not have a tear. AND, did NOT advise me that, although he sees no tear, I ought to go to a retinal specialist, since a retinal tear is something that is easily missed unless you are examined by one - they know how to properly look. Luckily, I didn't feel quite right and had to question his diagnosis after researching about retinal tears (They are a common cause of MALPRACTICE SUITS brought against ophthalmologists.). A specialist in Manhattan saw that I did indeed have a tear and fixed it with a laser!!
