TOP QUESTIONS WE HEAR FROM PATIENTS

What is the difference between Optometry and Ophthalmology?

Optometrists and ophthalmologists go through the same training when it comes to ocular anatomy, eye disease, and pharmaceuticals; however, their training differs in that optometrists receive more extensive training when it comes to refractive/binocular vision conditions requiring specialty lenses and/or vision therapy.

 

Ophthalmologists are trained in surgical treatments for ocular conditions such as cataracts, retinal detachments or severe glaucoma.  

Do you see kids? If so, how young?

 

We see small kids, big kids, and kids at heart. We see infants as young as 6 months. Early diagnosis and care can prevent or reverse several vision disorders.
