Ophthalmology Specialists at Penn Highlands Healthcare

Eyesight is often taken for granted until a problem arises. When it does, it can be scary and it may take a specialist to help fix the problem. Luckily, there are physicians called ophthalmologists who specialize in eye care and eye surgery. These specialists work with patients in our region who have cataracts, glaucoma, eye muscle problems, blocked tear ducts, and corneal or eye injuries. They also see patients with macular degeneration, double vision and all other diseases of the eye.

Ophthalmologists differ from optometrists and opticians in their levels of training and in what conditions they can diagnose and treat. An ophthalmologist is licensed to practice medicine and surgery. An ophthalmologist diagnoses and treats all eye diseases, performs eye surgery, and prescribes and fits eyeglasses and contact lenses to correct vision problems.

Ophthalmologists perform surgeries at Penn Highlands DuBois, Penn Highlands Brookville, Penn Highlands Clearfield, the Penn Highlands Elk Surgery Center in St. Marys and Clarion Hospital.
