"Dr.
was very pleasant to work with. She did all the eye examinations & refraction very professionally. She prescribed an antibiotic" ointment for the eye infections and an over-the-counter eye ointment for the dry eyes and inflamed eyelids. I applied these as instructed, and haven't had a problem since. I'm really happy with the solution - its relatively easy to apply, its not expensive, and it works really well. When I got the glasses made from the new prescription (at the optometrist's office next door) they were sharp and clear and perfect. I have no complaints whatsoever and I will go back to Dr.
for my next exam. I would recommend her to anyone.

"Appointment for screening was punctual. Operation was scheduled for a time that worked with my free time; very considerate. Lens choices were well explained. Pre" and post operative directions were well explained. Follow up appointments were at my convenience, and very well managed.

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.

was warm and courteous and performed a thorough examination of my eyes. Fortunately, I did not have macular degeneration.
Also Dr.

Dr.

did the surgery for my eyes using the advanced technology of Catalys laser and intraocular lens. The procedure was painless. I felt very comfortable during the surgery. The recuperation was very short. The result was a miracle. Now my vison is 20/20. I can read, drive, and function independently. Dr.

corrected my nearsightedness, astigmatism, and removed my cataract. He opened a whole new world for me. I never imagined that I would be able to see this well in my life. It was such a beautiful feeling to see the world that is bright and colorful. To me, Dr.

He was friendly, but I felt he was talking more to the assistants than me. I had new glasses made with the prescription he wrote, but when I received them, could not even see out of them. So I returned them. Going to a new doctor for an eye exam, I was told that I had a serious issue with one eye. I know this was the case when I visited Dr.

. He did not even mention this issue, but then his "assistant" was the one who did all the exam of my eyes.

I arrived early for my appointment just as Dr.
Chattanooga Ophthalmologists Provider Name Locked
was finishing up with a patient, so I had little wait time before she was ready for me. She set the instrument, that she uses to check vision, to the lens powers that had given me the best vision when she had tested my eyes last month. She rechecked my vision by flipping lenses between what were my ideal powers to others that were nearly the same but just a tad different. The prescription she had written was spot on. Then the two opticians in her office, from whom I had NOT ordered my lenses, took over. They figured out the problem right away but took a lot of their own time to confirm their conclusion: I had not received the high-end lenses I had paid for at the optician's from which I had ordered them. I had received
Chattanooga Ophthalmologists Provider Name Locked
quality ones, and although the prescription itself had been filled correctly, my eyes were not positioned to see through the part of the lenses that would correct near vision. They shared their findings with Dr.
Chattanooga Ophthalmologists Provider Name Locked
, who rewrote my prescription and added specifics relative to fitting me for new lenses. What did she and her opticians charge for their considerable efforts on my behalf? Nothing! I offered to pay for their services, but they declined. (I brought the enhanced prescription and the results of Dr.
Chattanooga Ophthalmologists Provider Name Locked
's opticians' discoveries to the optician from which I had ordered the lenses. At no further cost to me, the right lenses were rush ordered for me. I have them now, and they are the right ones. Hereafter, however, I will order new lenses from Dr.

and her opticians.)

performed cataract surgery on both eyes. I opted for the toric lenses, and have 20/20 in one eye and 20/30 in the other eye. He did a great job of selecting the lenses. On all visits, he and his staff were highly professional and helpful. I highly recommend Dr.
