  • Ophthalmology

    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.

An eye doctor in Attleboro referred me to Dr. Rizzuto and I'm happy that he did. I knew immediately that I would like him since I'm a transplanted Jersey girl and he's a former New Yorker. He was easy and friendly and and did an excellent job with the surgery he performed on my eye. My eye healed up great without any pain or complications. I would recommend him to anyone!
