Ambrosino Kimberly OD
I spent years trying to find an ophthalmologist who could get my daughter's Rx right (she's had glasses since she was 1)...and once she decided she wanted contacts, the quest seemingly began again (hindered, additionally, by a severe astigmatism AND severe contact-allergies). Our pediatric ophthalmologist recommended Dr. Ambrosino as she had "heard" that Dr. Ambrosino was great with contacts. It was the best move we've made. She's been our primary vision Doc since then (several years now), as we have seen better results with her than any Dr we've had in the past 16 years. My expectations were honestly low due to her office being attached to a Sam's Club and her lack of specialized training, but she's been a God-sent to us these past few years and I would highly recommend her. She's very conscientious about making sure my daughter's contacts are comfortable and getting the Rx right, which many prior Drs had not even followed up on. It took a few visits to get them as comfortable as possible for my daughter (thanks to all the limitations), but Dr. Ambrosino has been incredibly helpful and considerate the entire time. Even though her office doesn't take our insurance, we opt to pay out of pocket in order to get the quality of care she provides...and that says a lot!
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.
