Ophthalmology at Saint Vincent Hospital
Ophthalmologists specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of eye problems, diseases and injuries. This care includes managing diseases such as diabetic retinopathy and glaucoma, prescribing glasses and contact lenses for vision problems, treating eye injuries and performing surgery on the eye. Some of the most common surgeries involve cataracts, glaucoma, retinal detachment and obstruction of tear ducts. Many ophthalmologists also offer LASKI laser surgery for correcting vision.
