What is an Ophthalmologist?

An ophthalmologist is a doctor who provides comprehensive care for all sorts of eye care needs, including preventive care and care for acute and chronic diseases as well as injuries to the eye and surrounding structures.

What is comprehensive eye care?

Comprehensive eye care includes all the screenings, tests, evaluations, treatments and procedures used to ensure your eyes stay as healthy as possible at every age. The cornerstone of comprehensive eye care is the eye exam, designed to evaluate your vision as well as the structure of your eye. Dr. Michelle Muench is trained in performing in-depth exams that can provide important information about your eye health, including subtle clues that could indicate the presence or risk of a disease. By offering intervention early, many potentially blinding diseases can be treated before permanent vision loss takes place.
