It is our goal to provide the highest quality care possible in a surrounding of compassion and professionalism.
 
 OPHTHALMOLOGIST
 
 An ophthalmologist is a physician specially trained to perform regular eye examinations for glasses and contact lenses and to diagnose and treat numerous disorders that include cataracts, glaucoma, retinal diseases, injuries, infections, tumors, and allergies that affect the eyes, eyelids, orbits, and other tissues around the eye. Treatment of these disorders may require eye drops, injections, oral medication, surgery, x-ray therapy, cryosurgery, or other procedures depending on your problem.
