When choosing an eye surgeon, it's important to be careful in your selection. After all, this is a person who will be working with one of the most sensitive and fragile parts of your body, performing a surgery that leaves no room for error. At Seeta Eye Care Centers, we seek to provide the best Highland eye surgeons to perform your LASIK surgery, refractive lens replacement, or other optical procedures you may require.
The most important thing to keep in mind is the distinction between an optometrist and an ophthalmologist. Optometrists in the state of New York can give eye exams, prescribe eyeglasses or contact lenses, and prescribe medications to treat certain eye conditions with additional certification.
While ophthalmologists can perform the same tasks as an optometrist, you generally go to an ophthalmologist if you need surgery performed on your eye. Ophthalmologists spend four years in medical school and a minimum of three years in residency to complete their training, and fulfill continuing education requirements in order to keep their license and stay up-to-date with the latest surgical techniques.
Seeta Eye Care Centers currently employs three board-certified ophthalmologists and one optometrist at our practice, each of which has an impressive list of accomplishments and a record of medical and surgical success. If you want your eye surgery done by a highly-qualified professional in the Highland area, you can't do better than the eye surgeons at Seeta Eye Care Centers.
