Specialties

Dr. William L Benedict has the following 1 specialty

  • 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.

Very smart and recognizes the client's expertise

Dr. Benedict first diagnosed my daughter's retina degeneration when she was 13. We clearly had been dealing with a syndrome that affected many body systems but no one had been able to name. With this new puzzle piece of information, he sent us to the one person in our state whose specialty is genetic syndromes that affect the eyes. Since then, I (Mom) have stayed current with every development re this syndrome where research has blossomed in recent years. When we go for my daughter's annual visit, Dr. Benedict asks for updates, reads a journal paper I bring for him, etc. It's refreshing to have a doctor who recognizes he cannot be current on extremely rare syndromes to the same degree that an intelligent parent can who has interest in only one.
