The doctor is not very friendly, rude and acts like a know it all. I told him things that my old optometrist told me and he disagreed and acted like only he know what he was talking about. I order my contacts from them and they say give us a week but it's always close to two weeks before they call me and let me know my contacts are in. I've been going to a eye doctor since I was 11 and wearing contacts since I was 14 and it has never taken close to two weeks to get my contacts in. They also were very confused by my insurance and that took a bit to straighten out. The optometrist I use to go to had no problem with my insurance and it only took a few days to get my contacts. If my old optometrist wasn't 40 minutes away I would go back to him. This office doesn't have it together
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.
