I visited Dr Parmar for my mother's cataract surgery, doctor is very friendly greeted my mother in Bengali, checked both the eye and explained the situation. As her blood sugar was high couldn't go for the surgery for a month, however surgery was conducted on 21st August and all the staff took utmost care pre and post-operative procedure. Got all the paperwork for insurance purposes very smoothly and follow date were also given time to time. Hence I would highly recommend Dr Parmar for eye treatment. Kudos to the Dr Vimal Parmar and team.
Dr. Parmar is a real gentle man as well as a very good Doctor. He discusses patients problem up to his satisfaction and explains everything regarding the disease and line of treatment necessary. I have great confidence on him. I have very rarely seen such a nice Doctor. Moreover he is very prompt and quick. His clinic is equipped with all the modern equipment. His fellow staff members are also very cordial and well behaved.
Dr Parmar was friendly. But was totally unhappy with optometrist. She did not give proper power, she was giving excuses that you have retina issue so you are seeing hazy, which was untrue. Totally unprofessional, will never recommend anyone for power checkup. After using new power, not able to see properly.
It was a blessing to have my Cataract surgery performed by a very friendly and Efficient Surgeon Dr Vimal Parmar
Q: Who is an Ophthalmologist?
A: An ophthalmologist is a medical doctor specialised in vision and eye care. Unlike other specialisations in eye care, ophthalmologists attend to almost all kinds of eye disorders and related issues. Since they are doctors, they can refer patients to other specialists even if the disease is not eye related.
Q: Is an Ophthalmologist different from an Optometrist?
A: Yes. Both of them are very much different. Although ophthalmologists and optometrists both provide vision and eye care, an optometrist attends to common eye disorders and certain chronic diseases like glaucoma, while an ophthalmologist, along with the common disorders, can take up more complex eye disorders that even require surgery.
Q: Can an Ophthalmologist perform surgery?
A: Yes, ophthalmologists can perform surgery as they tend to have years of training and experience. Many ophthalmologists obtain subspecialty training in areas like eyelid surgery, retinal surgery or pediatric surgery. Others perform surgery based on requirements of the local hospitals or surgical centres.
Q: How can an Ophthalmologist help for Cataract?
A: Ophthalmologists initially perform eye exams like slit-lamp exam, retinal exam, and visual acuity test. Once cataract is diagnosed, there are certain steps that the patient should follow. Cataract can be removed only with surgery. During surgery, the eye’s natural cloudy lens is replaced by an artificial lens by the surgeon, thus resolving the issue.
Q: Should one visit an Ophthalmologist for contact lenses?
A: An ophthalmologist can indeed prescribe contact lenses. Even optometrists can prescribe contact lenses and hence it is not necessary that one should visit an ophthalmologist only. Both of them can perform eye exams for the same and the patient can visit either of them
