Description of Services for Ophthalmology
The Ophthalmology service provides advanced specialty eye care. The ophthalmologist provides medical and surgical treatment for diseases and conditions of the eye. Specific areas of treatment include glaucoma, cornea, retina, cataract extraction, diabetic retinopathy and general ophthalmology.
Exams are usually one hour long. Most exams will include pupil dilation. Dilation will cause blurry near vision and light sensitivity for the rest of the day.
Patients must have a referral from a primary care provider to make an appointment with ophthalmology.
