Ophthalmology (Eye) - SBH Health System

Ophthalmology (Eye)

SBH eye experts provide comprehensive care for people who seek answers about conditions and diseases of their eyes. Each year doctors in the Division of Ophthalmology provide eye care through nearly 12,000 visits to our clinics.

SBH eye specialists (ophthalmologists and optometrists) diagnose and treat hundreds of eye conditions, including many that are rare or complex. We offer a full range of eye care, from routine eye exams to surgery. Our doctors have special expertise in cataracts, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, cornea transplant, and diseases of the eyelids, and the nerves related to the eye.

SBH eye care professionals also perform refractions, prescribe corrective lenses and offer cosmetic eye surgery and contact lens services.

Why Choose SBH for Your Eye Care

SBH eye specialists work closely with you and your health care team to understand and address your eye care needs. Many eye problems are related to other medical conditions, such as diabetes, immune system conditions and thyroid disease. Our eye experts collaborate with other specialists (endocrinologists, oncologists, neurologists) to provide exactly the care you need based on what’s right for you.

Eye care professionals trained in treating children with eye conditions can work with doctors trained in the general care of children (pediatricians) and other areas to care for children with eye conditions
