Ophthalmology is the branch of medicine that focuses on the study, diagnosis and treatment of eye diseases and disorders. An ophthalmologist has either a Doctor of Medicine degree or a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine degree, with specialty training in vision and eye care. In addition to performing eye exams, diagnosing and treating eye disease and prescribing medications and prescription lenses, ophthalmologists also perform eye surgery, including LASIK and cataract surgery.
In the following pages, you will find information about ophthalmology, including: common visual problems; vision disorders; eye diseases; nonsurgical and surgical treatment options; and best practices to protect or improve your eye health.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact our office for more information.
Dr. Siegal takes a lot of time with each patient. You don't feel like you are just a 'chart'. He explains everything and answers all questions thoroughly. His staff is always friendly and professional. This time I was getting glasses also and his staff took time to help me make the right decisions and also offered helpful opinions.
Great experience! I work in the city and get home late, so having Saturday hours and some late weekday hours is so helpful. Everyone was very nice and answered any questions I had. Definitely coming back for annual eye exams.
The whole experience was great. Everyone I dealt with was so pleasant & helpful. Won’t go anywhere else now!
