As a dedicated ophthalmologist, he is an expert in the functions, diseases, and anatomy of the eye. He provides routine care, including vision testing, prescribing and fitting the much needed eyeglasses or contact lenses. As an ophthalmologist, he is also a surgeon, an expert in repairing traumatic injuries of the eye, performing corneal land cataract surgery as needed.
Because ophthalmologists are experts in their field, they specialize in specific eye conditions or certain types of surgery. Among the most common procedures they perform include corneal transplant surgery, as well as the management of diseases of the sclera or cornea. Ophthalmologists do not just help in treating these conditions on adults, but also young children.
