Dr. Jason M Beddingfield, OD
Dr. Beddingfield is WONDERFUL! When I moved to Laurel I tried 2 other doctors before finding him. Of the three, I felt the most comfortable with him and his office. He never made me feel like I was being rushed through the appointment and he didn't mind answering all of my questions. He was also the ONLY doctor to find the scar in my eye (my doctor from St. Louis had already told me about it). IF the others saw it, they didn't mention it. Additionally, he and his staff were understanding about not having insurance. Just like everyone else, they expected payment at the end of the appointment. However, they were very upfront about all of the costs and offered to help out where they could. He's been my doctor for 6 yrs and I won't go anywhere else.
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.
