Ophthalmology & Optometry

Both Ophthalmologists and Optometrists are primary care eye doctors. Ophthalmologists are medical doctors (MD) trained in the subspecialty of eye surgery and the diagnosis and treatment of eye diseases. Doctors of Optometry (OD) practice non-surgical diagnosis and treatment of eye diseases. Ophthalmologists and Optometrists perform routine eye exams and manage eye diseases, injuries, and disorders of the visual system. In coordinated practice, patients may be managed by an Ophthalmologist and Optometrist together to maximize expertise and efficiency.

"I have been an oncology patient at SWC for over 6 years. In no particular order I want to express my sincere thanks to the staff for the empathy, patience, and compassion they have selflessly extended to their patients during some of our most difficult days. What you do isn't easy nor is it taken for granted. It is a true calling that God placed on your hearts and I like so many others would like to take this opportunity to say THANK YOU! It's people like you that make it easier for people like me to keep fighting."
