Bruce Haight, MD
I have gone to see Dr. Haight a couple times. I really like him, He is very nice and he explains everything. I really like his staff. They have an optical right on sight so it's one stop and you can have an exam and get glasses or contacts.

Dr. Glenn Cook, MD
I scheduled a 2nd opinion and went in and started talking about the cataract surgery that I am having with another MD at the end of the month and Dr. Cook became very irate and was yelling at me and calling me names and walked out of the appt saying "pay me $400 and I will listen to your questions all day". He is very unstable, and I am never going back. He has no respect for women and treated me like I was not even a human being. Apparently he was mad because I scheduled surgery with another MD. Bizarre and he needs to retire ASAP. Don't take your loved ones to this MD he is all about the money and shows little to no caring about his patients unless he is making the big bucks. He bragged to me also that he could buy as many steak dinners as he wanted to that is how much money his has so he can pick and choose who he wants to do surgery on. He is a very bad person.Dr. Ma at Scripps Clinic in San Diego is a caring and knowledgeable, well respected local opthalmologist who will treat your loved one's with the utmost respect and take the time to answer all questions. I have also seen Dr. Afshari at UCSD Shiley Eye Center, another very honest and trustworthy eye surgeon who really cares about you and your loved ones.
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.
