    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.

Great doc--performed lasik and 15 years later cataract surgery with visits in between. Very precise and exact-just the kind of guy you want for eye surgery. When I had a reaction to a medication on a Sunday following surgery --was I surprised when after calling the emergency # Launer called me back, himself, in less then a half hour. Additionally his entire staff is very professional and precise as well as friendly
