    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.

This doctor has a lot of good karma coming back to him

I just want the world to know how kind hearted and knowledgable this eye doctor is, and what an asset he is to our community. Dr. Shareef realized that I was really suffering with an eye injury that I incurred overseas, and he saw me in an emergency visit on the weekend. His help has changed my life as I no longer have to walk around with an ugly red eye and the psychological consequences of constantly avoiding eye contact. (First impressions are everything, and with a disgusting, oozing red eye, I was really affected.) Dr. Shareef accurately diagnosed the problem, prescribed the right medicine, and now I am fine. Dr. Shareef honestly fits the bill of the physician super hero who through extraordinary effort, ability, and kindness, changes the world for a better place. Support this person and his practice!
