Dr. William A Newsom has the following 1 specialty
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.

Dr. Newsome performed Lasik surgery on my 8-9 yrs ago and I was impressed with how efficient and professional he and his staff were from the first phone call. I'm saying this now because I just called to make an appt. for an eye exam and am returning after all these years because of that first experience. Again, the person who answered my call was helpful and professional and she was able to answer all of my questions. There are other doctors in the practice and I feel confident being examined by any of them because they would not be part of the practice if they were not up to Dr. Newsome's level of expertise.
