Some common conditions that ophthalmologists treat are cataracts, glaucoma, strabismus, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration and amblyopia.

Dr Nelson provided my follow-up care after a retinal detachment surgery because Dr Miller moved from the area. Dr Nelson gave me excellent care, continually monitored my progress as the vision slowly returned to my right eye. He explained each step in detail as we progressed and now my vision has been corrected to 20/25 in the eye that had the detachment. I can't say enough good things about these professionals. The low score on promptness is because the were so busy and one time there was an emergency they were responding to.
