  • 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.

He might be a very smart doctor, but I didn't feel like he understood my problem

Went in complaining of dry eyes. He told me he "sees this a lot in post menopausal women" (I'm 35) and that I needed tear duct plugs. When I said that didn't feel right to me and asked what other options were out there, he told me none. Come to find out, I have inflammatory bowel disease and the eye inflammation is related to that. If he had asked more questions about my overall health, he may have suggested I get checked out by a gastroenterologist and I could have gotten to the bottom if my health problems before they became severe. I'm sure this doctor has a lot of knowledge, but I didn't feel like he listened to me as an expert on myself and I feel like he just wasn't interested in explaining anything or looking further for a solution once he had decided what the solution should be. I never followed up with him because I just didn't think my eye dryness was caused by an unexplained inability to produce enough tears, and I certainly wasn't willing to accept that I should accept the same treatment as all those post-menopausal women he referred to. I need to feel like a doctor understands what the underlying problem is before I feel confident in their ability to prescribe the correct course of action to help symptoms improve.
