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.

Or experience with her was with my 3 year old when she was attacked by a dog thanksgiving weekend. After having a bad experience with a previous hospital and their oncall opthamoligist would not even come in to check her nor would any of the other Opthamoligists in the area. We were flown to KC Childrens where Dr Ariss came in late at night and did an amazing job on my my daughter. So well, that Vanderbilt Children's eye Clinic said I don't know what they are teaching them in KC but she did an amazing job! So thank you Dr. Ariss!!! My daughter looks amazing!
My expierience with Dr.Michelle Ariss has been nothing but the best from my first meeting with Michelle all the way through diagnoses and a required surgery. Because of other health problems in my life ive had my share of Dr's over the years and often today many physicians never let go of the door knob. All phsyicians today could learn something from Dr.Michelle Ariss about how patients want to be treated. Just one visit with Michelle and you will be asking yourself why can't all your Dr's be as beautiful and warm as her. Dr.Michelle Ariss helped me get my sight back and when people ask me if I know a Ophthalmologist i'll be doing them a favor and sending them in the direction of the most beautiful women ive ever had the pleasure meeting in any feild of medicine. Michelle, if you ever read this id like to just say thank you for the warm smile and helping me be able to see again. God Bless You!
