    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.

Rude and uncaring

I honestly felt like I wanted to cry in my appointment. The staff is very friendly, they are very professional about what they do and I feel like I'm getting good treatment. That being said Russel Hayhurst is incredibly rude and harsh. He seems to have little to no empathy when discussing things with you. When you're a doctor who deals with people who experience difficulties in life with vision everyday, you'd think you would develop a little bit of a heart. Not the case with this Dr. have gone to him for 10+ years and finally have had the last straw. Will be looking for a doctor who actually is KIND. Maybe he should learn from his techs because they are sweet hearts.

Very rude and did not take the time to discus my disease. I wasn't even sure that there was a problem when I made the appointment, but it is there and he told me about it like he was selling fries. He only cared about his money.

Most impressed with the staff. Physician seemed busy but still professional. His manner seems quick but direct and to the point. I actually prefer that to sugarcoating my disease. Would recommend mostly due to staff - knowledgeable and very caring.
