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.

My son got referred for an eye exam in first grade. He needed glasses so of course we purchased them. A few months later I notice he wasn't wearing them in class so I asked him about it. He told me he could see just as well with the glasses as without. Initially, I wondered if he didn't really need them after all, but decided to see Dr. Brown for a second opinion and thank heaven I did. My son has a few genetic issues that were causing him to go blind in one eye, which were completely missed by the first doctor we saw. Dr. Brown was very thorough, did an excellent job explaining his condition, and gave us a treatment plan. If we had known about his disease when he first got glasses we could have saved much more of his vision. However, he can see better and can play the sports he loves. Dr. Brown is a gifted and intelligent physician.
This is the worst Dr. I have ever seen. No bedside manner very rude! very denfensive when you ask a question. I'm not sure why he has an assistant meet with his patients before his exam, because he does not read the collected information. I have private insurance, but this is the type of care you would expect from a govnerment funded program.
