"Dr.
recommended further testing & after evaluation with his colleagues he decided that surgery should not be performed but prescribed" an additional eye drop in both eyes. After 2 weeks she was further evaluated & vision was improved so he recommended that the eye drop be continued as an addition to the 3 other eye drops. She has another visit in October.

"After a thorough followup eye examination today, no changes were noted at the resection sites. Dr.
explained the reasons for future followup" in a clear and concise manner. This is my go-to office for oculoplastic concerns and I sincerely recommend Dr.
and his entire staff to anyone with similar needs.

Ophthalmology

Quite literally meaning "the science of the eyes." ophthalmology studies the way the eye works. Ophthalmologists care for this incredibly complex and delicate part of the body and the factors that affect its health.

Optometrist vs. ophthalmologist? Know the difference between these two medical professionals and choose the best professional when it comes to eye care.

Optometrists and ophthalmologists use a phoropter like the one shown above to determine prescriptions for glasses and contact lenses. By dilating the eyes, doctors can also find rare diseases. (Photo by Jeremy Deal)

Blurred or lost vision may be signs of a potential eye ailment, but some rare diseases that can cause blindness can only be detected with an examination.

This was my first time at this place. The office was nice, got me in immediately. Called earlier that morning for an appointment. The assistant and the doctor were nice and friendly.

Some of the staff was impatient and grumpy; others were kind and cheerful. ( I would be grumpy too if I had to wear heels to work). It was assembly line care with each person doing one small part of the care. Very efficient and the procedure was pretty easy. Lots of written instructions which was good but sometimes they would contradict each other....More /> I have had cataract removal and lens replacement in one eye. No one warned me that I might have extreme light sensitivity for a prolonged period which I have found is not unusual in talking with others who have had the procedure done. I am hoping this improves. It is extremely difficult to drive East in the mornings and I wear a black baseball cap pulled down low anyplace that has bright lighting.

on multiple occasions because they are near where I live. However, they are consistently much higher priced than other stores. If you have the extra money, they are an excellent, knowledgeable optics establishment.

Just as Angie's list members had described in their reviews. Will use this group for my annual and any eye care needed.

Was referred to an retinal specialist in the office for another appointment. Several eye tests were taken as a baseline. No news is good news. But have been scheduled for two more appointments (one with the original opthalmologist and one with the retinal specialist) for later this year. Will have a better 'feel' of this business after the next appointments..

I called for an appointment for an eye examination and wanted an opthamalogist to do it. The appointment was scheduled for two days out and the exam was done promptly when I arrived. A complete and thorough exam should only the need for glasses and they are available right there at the facility. I was pleased enough to go back and purchase a second pair of glasses for driving.

Overall it did not go well. The person who called me back from the waiting room. Did not introduce himself or his position. He ran a few test on my eyes that are typically run by a technician and not the doctor. As he brought me into the exam room and sat me in the chair he took my current glasses and wrote some things down, telling me nothing about what he was doing. Then he started having me look through the machine and asking be to choose between two lenses, "better or worse", scenario. He only did two on each eye and when I was having trouble deciding which one was better or worse he got frustrated and snapped that I had to pick one. I wear progressives and have been farsighted my whole life but now with age have other issues too. He never examined by reading prescription and said the doctor would be in. I truly thought he was getting some kind of baseline because it was not a complete eye exam that I am accustom to. The doctor came in and asked me a couple of questions. I am not sure what I said but she started telling me about how glasses work like I had never worn them before. When I told her I had worn glasses my whole like she stopped her description. I know it was my first visit but I felt she did very little to know about my needs or history. She got called out of the room for another patient and throughout kept checking on others and coming back to me. Then she came back in to dilate my eyes and I was SOOO confused because I really felt like I didn't have an eye exam yet. I should have said something then but didn't after she dilated my eyes and did that exam she started talking about my prescription. I then told her I hadn't had an eye exam and she said that whatever the other guy did was the exam. Again I still don't know who he was or what his job title was. I said he didn't give me a reading test, and the exam didn't seem complete. At that point she still didn't exam my eyes but called the guy back to give me a reading test while my eyes were dilated. He then changed my reading prescription and said he made the other one based on my age. They then sent me out with my dilated eyes and prescription and nothing else. I did get glasses with the prescription and regret it because it isn't the correct prescription and I should have know that would have been the case.
