Ophthalmology focuses on treating diseases and conditions that affect the eye. What this means is that an ophthalmologist takes care of both procedures and medical care for the eye. Dr. Epstein is a specialist dealing with multiple eye diseases and conditions.
Ophthalmology Training and Education
Becoming an ophthalmologist requires a medical degree and completing residency like other branches of medicine.
Ophthalmology training covers the entire spectrum of eye care. Ophthalmologists are trained to do thorough eye exams to prescribe glasses or contact lenses, offer medical treatment for assorted eye problems, and do complex and delicate eye procedures for qualified candidates. They also take an active role in conducting scientific research on eye diseases and other serious vision problems. Ophthalmologists work to uncover causes behind such things and find cures.
An ophthalmologist is a licensed medical doctor, so they are permitted to practice medicine and preform procedures. This is different from an optometrist who focuses on performing eye exams and prescribing corrective lenses. We work together with many local optometrists and other specialists to provide complete eye care for the family.
