Over the past 4 years I have gone to 2 Optometrists and received 4 prescriptions for eyeglasses. None of these prescriptions allowed me to see distance clearly. I was told my distance issue was due to either polycarbonate lenses, the curvature of the eyeglass frames, cataracts, astigmatism, or that I wear the glasses too low on my face. 1 month after my last exam resulting in yet another pair of eyeglasses that didn't allow me to see distance clearly, I went to the Opthamologist, Dr. Bowen. He spent time asking me questions and carefully examined my eyes. He wrote an eyeglass prescription that differed noticeably from the 4 that the other doctors wrote for me. I had the glasses made, and as soon as I put them on I could see distance clearly for the first time in 4 years, and colors were now much brighter. I can't thank Dr. Bowen enough. If you want a precise, correct eyeglass prescription, go to Dr. Bowen.
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.
