About

Bio

I am 59 and a half years old and have been in practice for 30 years. Outside of work, I have many interests and hobbies. I enjoy playing tennis and working out. I love listening to all types of music and enjoy going to the theater. I also enjoy spending time with my kids and going out to eat. I am currently pursuing an interest I have had for a long time. :I am hosting a radio show for my practice called "Eye on Health" It will be on WCHE, a Chester County radio station the first and third Tuesdays at 1:00 pm. It will involve interviewing experts in the field of medical and surgical ophthalmology.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.

Not really: A physician assistant can treat certain eye conditions just like a NP but does not specialize in eye diseases. The training is much more limited than an optometrist or ophthalmologist. They are also limited in what they can prescribe.
A 41-year-old member asked:
Dr. Bruce Stark
Ophthalmology 47 years experience
Brief answer: Comprehensive ophthalomology involves treatment and diagnosis ofmany ophthalmic condition. Many ophthalmologist specialize in one specific area of ophthalmology rather than treat many conditions seen on a daily basis. At the completion of residency all ophthalmologist are comprehesnive but may choose to do a fellowhsip and subspecialize .

Yes: Technically speaking an MD who is not an ophthalomologist could sign off on a prescription for glasses but this would be very unusual.
