"Why Should I Choose an Optometrist in Private Practice?"
Optometrists and ophthalmologists have many similarities and differences. Ophthalmologists are trained to be ocular surgeons; there are 7 different specialties! Optometrists care for the medical health of your eyes, treat diseases (such as glaucoma) and make sure that you see the very best. Dr. Park owns the practice and the location, making "the buck stop here." The commercial chains are tempting but are mostly owned and operated by larger corporations with employee doctors. We at Dr. Dorothy Park & Associates will give you the best care known in the eye care community.
