DR. TARONGOY: There are different types of eye doctors. Those that examine your eyes and prescribe glasses are called optometrists. Those that examine your eyes and prescribe medications, or do surgeries are called ophthalmologists. Some ophthalmologists undergo specialty training in specific disorders of the eye. At ACES, we have experienced sub-specialists in the fields of retina, glaucoma, pediatrics, refractive, orbit, and plastic surgeries working as a team. That is why we can offer patients the benefit of a second or more opinions in just one visit.
VO: Trust only in an eye care clinic that uses a team approach to eye care. A team of experienced and pioneering doctors is ready to give you long-term total eye care you need and deserve.
