Even a board-certified ophthalmologist may not be an expert when it comes to certain types of eye care. Some treatments have become so specialized that ophthalmologists seek additional training in these areas to learn the most advanced and latest techniques—and to provide the highest level of care available for their patients. This is known as subspecialization.
At SoCal Eye, our medical team includes subspecialists in retina, pediatric ophthalmology, corneal surgery, refractive surgery, glaucoma, oculoplastic and cosmetic surgery, uveitis, and neuro-ophthalmology. If a referral is needed, you can rest assured you will be seen by a doctor with the necessary expertise.
