I was a patient long before this practice was bought out by the current doctor. The wait time is atrocious, always a long wait, sometimes 40,45, or close to an hour late beyond appointment schedules. Secondly, I dont have insurance & pay out of pocket...the one thing I expect is to be able to see a DOCTOR for my entire exam however, a "tech" does the exam in full, even writes the prescription; I see the doctor for 5 mins if we are lucky at the end. Thirdly, the person running the eyeglass section is condescending. I went to this practice for more than 10 yrs, but I cant take it anymore, Im done. Have to find a doctor that is willing to actually DO the exam on me & a eyeglass rep who is not so high pressure. Cant believe I actually lasted this long with this aggravation at this practice. If you have alot of time on your hands to hang around and wait, go for it, this is the place for you.
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.
