2. Diagnosis and Treatment of Eye Conditions: Ophthalmologists diagnose and treat a variety of eye conditions, including but not limited to:

Refractive Errors: Prescribing eyeglasses, contact lenses, or performing laser refractive surgery such as LASIK to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, and presbyopia.

Corneal Surgery:Corneal transplantation (keratoplasty), corneal cross-linking, or other procedures to treat corneal disorders.

Oculoplastic Surgery:Surgical procedures for eyelid reconstruction, ptosis repair (drooping eyelids), eyelid malposition correction, and removal of eyelid lesions or tumors.

Strabismus Surgery:Surgical correction of misaligned eyes to improve eye coordination and alignment.
