Dr. Spicer is a wonderful, wonderful person. She has excellent surgical skills and a delicate touch.She is very detailed oriented and a perfectionist.I had eye surgery and she took great care of me. She came to see me that night in the hospital andmade sure that I had everything I needed. I was having a painful night and she changed the painmedications and stayed with me until my pain was under control. That impressed my family as well that she cared enough to stay in my room until I was comfortable.I will not forget her special care that night. Dr Spicer has such a kind heart and gently way with people.I recommend her to all of my friends family.
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.
