Opthalmology

What is an Ophthalmologist?

An ophthalmologist is a medical doctor who specializes in eye care. They undergo extensive training beyond medical school, focusing on the diagnosis and treatment of all aspects of the eye. Unlike optometrists, who primarily focus on vision correction and eye health assessments, ophthalmologists can perform surgery and manage complex eye diseases.

Eye Conditions Treated by Ophthalmologists

The Eye MD's team of ophthalmologists near you is equipped to diagnose and treat a wide variety of eye conditions, including:

•           Cataracts: A clouding of the lens that can cause blurry vision. Cataract surgery is a highly successful outpatient procedure to remove the clouded lens and replace it with a clear artificial lens, significantly improving vision.

•           Glaucoma: A group of eye diseases that damage the optic nerve, leading to vision loss. Glaucoma management may involve medication, laser treatment, or surgery to control eye pressure and prevent vision loss.

•           Dry Eye: A chronic condition causing irritation, discomfort, and blurry vision due to insufficient tear production or quality. The Eye MD offers various treatment options to alleviate dry eye symptoms.

•           Diabetic Retinopathy: A complication of diabetes that affects the blood vessels in the retina. Early detection and management are crucial to prevent vision loss. The Eye MD can provide comprehensive diabetic eye care.

•           Macular Degeneration: Age-related macular degeneration is a leading cause of vision loss in older adults. The Eye MD offers treatment options to manage macular degeneration and slow its progression.

Additional Services Offered by Ophthalmologists

In addition to treating eye diseases, ophthalmologists at The Eye MD can perform various procedures, including:

•           LASIK Surgery: A type of laser eye surgery to correct common vision problems like nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.

•           Laser Treatment: Laser technology can be used to treat various eye conditions, such as diabetic retinopathy and glaucoma.
