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. Howard did a good job explaining what was going on with an eye symptom that was concerning me for several weeks. By the time I saw him, I was getting worried. While it turned out that there is likely nothing serious going on, Dr. Howard did not dismiss my concerns and carefully examined my eyes, as well as discussing my symptoms with me and arranging a follow up appointment. I left feeling less worried about my symptoms and confident I have finally found a good local eye doctor, which is important because I have some underlying medical issues that can sometimes cause eye problems. Dr. Howard's assistant, who saw me first to go over medical history, etc. was competent and polite during my visit. I would recommend Dr. Howard.
Totally contrary to the negative review I just read on this site...I found Dr. Howard and his staff to be excellent people to deal with. Very pleasant and courteous. Dr Howard's prompt diagnosis of my vision problems a few years ago very likely saved my eyesight. His educated and thorough exams have continued to ensure my vision for as long as any macular degeneration patient may expect. Perhaps even longer considering his care and recommendation for the corrective care that is available today. I trust him implicitly and highly recommend both he and his staff.
Waited 45 minutes in exam room only to be confronted with a belligerent non apologetic doctor. Left without being examined and will NEVER return. Office staff is equally rude. Told him I had been waiting 45 minutes, his reply, " so be it !" Complete jerk, said he will see if he deems me as patient: dream on!
