The doctors of Eye Care Specialists recognize that patient education is an important part of patient care. The more educated our patients, the better you can communicate to your doctor the issues you are experiencing. Literally thousands of websites exist and are devoted to every imaginable health topic. This information is just a mouse click or a finger tap away. While it is beneficial to have this information at your fingertips, it is also imperative to gather information from trusted sources, not to "self-diagnose", and to seek the attention of a healthcare professional when indicated.
The information we share with our patients is from our doctors and trusted sources such as the American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO), The American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery (ASCRS), the American Association for Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus (AAPOS), and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP). If you feel you have symptoms of an eye condition, please call our office 573.335.3577 or 800.455.3937 and our ophthalmic technicians can determine the best course of action for what you are experiencing.
