Dr. Oscar A Cruz 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.

I would advise against the online scheduling, never received a call back. Also the scheduling dept at Cardinal Glennon called me once the day before our appointment to cancel, never offering a reschedule after having the appointment for months. The staff is very good. We've been to about 5 pediatric ophthalmologists and I haven't seen a better Doctor in the St. Louis area.
This doctor has his students look your child over, then he comes in for about 5-10 min looks for himself, does the same tests, which at this point your child May or may not do what they are supposed to do, then quickly tells you what's wrong. You always have to wait for long periods of time, the students that do the exams are usually friendly with my kid. Only once did I get someone who had no business working with kids. Follow ups are far and few in between. But I would give dr Cruz a big fat zero on the pure fact that he over corrected my daughters eyes and now her eyes went from a mild case of lazy eye to a wide variable of movement. Up down and cross eyed. Due to this she gets headaches and her vision is impaired. But he doesn't care. Sent me to a different doctor because he didn't know how to fix his own mistake. The new doctor. Dr davitt, keeps playing phone tag with me and it has now been over 4 months since seeing him. I would just avoid cardinal glennon all together, concerning eye care anyway
Dr. Cruz is great! He diagnosed my daughter as a baby and has been treating her for 8 years. The waiting room is often crowded and it takes awhile to get in to see him but his bedside manner is worth it. He always smiles and acts happy to see us. He even gave me his e-mail address encase I had concerns or questions. He is a caring doctor who wants the best for his patients.
