An ophthalmologist is a doctor who specializes in eye and vision care. They are trained to provide the full spectrum of eye care, from prescribing glasses and contact lenses to complex and delicate eye surgery.

Some common procedures include:

Cataract removal
This is a procedure used to remove a clouded lens (cataract) from the eye.

This is a plastic surgery operation for correcting defects, deformities, and disfigurations of the eyelids.

Corneal transplant
A cornea transplant is a surgical procedure to replace part of your cornea with corneal tissue from a donor.

Strabismus repair
This is a surgical procedure that loosens or tightens eye muscles, which changes the alignment of the eyes relative to each other.
