Midwest Eye Consultants
This office sold to Midwest Eye Consultants and went down hill fast. Dr. Gray Baals is the greatest eye Dr. I've ever been to. However the office has changed. I got new glasses and they didn't even fit them to my head they just gave them to me and asked me how they felt? I told them I could not see out of them and they said try them for a few days. I did and had nothing but trouble. I took them back and they gave me excuses, but ordered some new ones. The second pair had the very same problems. The girl told me I had cataracts and maybe that was the problem. Is it her job to tell me that? She said these lenses are the most expensive lenses, so the only thing they could do is make a third pair like my old ones, which were much less expensive. When the third pair came in they still didn't fit them or anything, she just gave them to me. I asked for a partial refund since these were less expensive and she said no. They lost two customers. My wife and I won't be back.Update: I changed my ratings because as soon as Dr. Baals heard of my problems, he personally wrote me a letter and apologized. He also said he took care of the staff problems and said I'd get a full refund for my glasses, which I did. As I said before Dr. Baals is the greatest eye Dr. I've ever seen and he just proved to me once again that his integrity is more important than anything else. I'm willing to give them another chance since they made it right with me. Thank you Dr. Baals!
Tips & Advices
While the first appointment is the most comprehensive, the majority of appointments with an ophthalmologist begin with a basic eye exam followed by a refraction to test if glasses are needed. Other tests might include an eye muscle coordination exam, a check of pupil response and peripheral vision, slit lamp microscope test to look at the anterior segment of the eye, and an intraocular pressure assessment.
Most eye doctors will charge different amounts for their services, but a basic eye exam with an ophthalmologist can range from $50 to $300. Additional tests and treatment will add to the price.
Ophthalmology subspecialties include strabismus/pediatric ophthalmology, neuro-ophthalmology, retina/uveitis ophthalmology, cornea/anterior segment ophthalmology, ophthalmic plastic surgery, and reconstruction.
Ophthalmologists can diagnose macular degeneration, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, ocular albinism, vitreous traction, cataracts, astigmatism, myopia, retinoblastoma, and many more.
The most popular ophthalmology procedures are cataract, laser eye treatment, and glaucoma surgeries.
