Ophthalmology is the medical field devoted to the study and care of eyes and vision. A physician with advanced training in eye and vision care is called an ophthalmologist.
The experienced, board-certified ophthalmologists affiliated with North Kansas City Hospital care about your vision and offer complete eye care for the whole family, from prescribing glasses and contact lenses to performing eye surgery. Eye diseases don’t always have symptoms, so regular checkups are the best way to protect your vision.
