Specialties

Dr. Richard E Pitts has the following 1 specialty

  • 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.

My Eye Doc for Life!

I have been a patient of Dr Pitts for 15 years. He first treated me for pink eye and I was so impressed by his genuine nature and compassion. He has a disarming quality that instantly puts you at ease. I have kept him as my regular physician as my eyes changed with age, he has been there for me. I would never think about seeing another eye doctor.

Too much Waiting in the Cold

Once in the door it was wait, wait, wait. Each visit was 1 hr to 3 3/4 hrs. Was stepped through several offices and people with very little explanation of what was happening. Dr. spent hardly any time with me. The place was VERY cold. No accomodation made by providing, blankets or even lab coats. Would not go back.
