  • 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.

Excellent, Quality Care

Dr. Harris is an expert in his field. He gives quality care, answers all questions and takes as much time as is needed with each patient. I had lasik surgery performed by Dr. Harris a few years ago and am still very pleased. I always refer many friends to Dr. Harris and his friendly staff.

Dr. Harris is the BEST

Dr. Harris is awesome. Only time I ever had to wait was when they squeezed me in for an emergency situation. Dr. Harris explains everything, and takes the time to answer any questions I may have, in layman's terms. I recommend him to anyone. Thank you.

i just sent a glowing review re. my visit but sent it without seeing a place to mention not just the exceptional care and manner of Dr. Ortiz, but also the exceptional care and competence of your staff, in particular Sheneese Thompson. I came in with an injury and, since i already am under Dr. Harris' care, i came assuming that i didnt need a referral from my primary. Ms. Thompson recognized the need for same, dropped the other work that she was doing and immediately called my primary. She apparently got someone on the line who wasnt familiar with what needed to be done, and patiently directed that person through the process, so that within minutes i had the referral i'd neglected to bring. Efficient to the nth degree. In the process, she certainly saved me at least a huge back-end/after visit tussle with my primary medical provider, and perhaps even hundreds of dollars. The nurse (?) who brought me back to the examining room and did the initial, pre-Dr. Ortiz exam, whose name unfortunately i don't know but who has cared for me in the past as well, also demonstrated remarkable knowledge and concern. (She drives an old Hyundai and wears eyeglasses.) Bottom line, thank you all for a great medical experience.
