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.

Dr. Gross saw my daughter after she poked herself in the eye and was experiencing vision problems. We had never seen him before, but when we called, his office told us to go ahead and come and they would work us in. He was very kind and thorough and we were pleased with his care. Fast forward a few months and my 9 year old pokes herself in the eye again, this time with a straw ...I know! She was in a lot of pain, but seemed to be improving. However the second night she was awake and crying off and on most of the night. I finally called the answering service at 5:30am and Dr Gross called me back immediately. He was very helpful in answering my questions and giving advice, even though he was getting ready to leave town that morning on vacation. He referred me to make an appointment to be seen by another doctor in the practice. I have been very pleased with his care and would definitely recommend him.
He is nice. It's like pulling teeth to get him to tell me exactly what's wrong. One visit it's one thing next visit something different. He failed to tell me that my daughter had astigmatism in BOTH eyes! I had to find out when I saw her prescription. He only told me she had a lazy eye that could be fixed and wouldn't need glasses and then changed to she's going to need them for the rest of her life! And he says it at the second visit like it was so obvious at the first visit. I'll never go back. But he is nice and has great ratings.
