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 first visited Dr. Thorp about 40 years when I injured my eye. I had no eye doctor, so I just walked in, and he treated me. He has been a wonderful caring physician, and still is. He has forgotten more than most know. Like someone else who reviewed him recently, I feel he is going to retire shortly, so I have regrettably been looking around for a new physician closer to home. I still drive a long distance to see Dr. Thorp.
Dr. Thorp is a wonderful opthamologist but I fear he's getting ready to retire, as he is currently only working part time, i.e., he's off over the summer, leaves at the end of May and doesn't return til October. A great gentle hands-on, eye doc, who really cares about his patients, and I will be so sad to lose him, as I'm a long-time patient of his.
