Ophthalmologists in Bala Cynwyd, PA

What Are Ophthalmologists?

An ophthalmologist treats diseases and injuries of the eye with surgical or medical methods. Many of our ophthalmologists are trained in specialty areas such as refractive surgery or corneal transplants.

How Is Ophthalmology Performed?

Everyone should have an eye examination at least once a year to check for abnormalities or vision changes. Someone with an eye injury or irritation should have an immediate evaluation by an ophthalmology expert. Examinations include an ophthalmologist looking at the surface and interior of the eyeball along with surrounding tissues with magnifying machines. A serious problem such as a retinal tear requires fast surgery to avoid blindness while an infection requires antibiotic eye drop medication.
