An ophthalmologist is a physician trained in the medical and surgical treatment of eye diseases. As a graduate of medical school, an ophthalmologist has general medical and surgical background.
Our doctors are trained in subspecialties of ophthalmology including medical and surgical diseases of the retina, oculoplastic surgery, glaucoma, laser surgery, and diseases of the cornea and ocular surface. We use the latest technologies and techniques to achieve the best results possible. We also provide in-office cosmetic procedures which allow patients to look younger, feel their best, and maintain a healthy self image.
Our practice is staffed by certified ophthalmic assistants and technicians who are trained in diagnostic procedures including: fluorescein angiography, ocular coherence tomography (OCT), pachymetry and diagnostic ultrasound.
Cleveland Eye Care and Surgery also offers complete contact lens services including fitting and dispensing of contact lenses. Rick Schmid is certified by the National Contact Lens Examiners and can provide the latest in contact lens wear. With years of experience, Mr. Schmid is highly successful with “difficult to fit” patients and is always up to date on the newest lenses that provide the best oxygenation for healthier eyes.
From routine eye exams to surgical procedures, our ophthalmology staff coordinates our services to address each individual patient's needs. We invest in the latest diagnostic technologies and our physicians are current on the newest treatments. As professionals, we provide you with the expertise and compassionate care that you expect.
