Ophthalmology is a branch of medicine and surgery, which deals with the diagnosis and treatment of eye disorders. Ophthalmologists are experts in the diseases, functions, and anatomy of the eye. They may provide routine care such as vision testing, as well as prescribe and fit eyeglasses or contact lenses. However, ophthalmologists are also surgeons. They repair traumatic injuries to the eye and perform cataract, glaucoma, retinal, and corneal surgery.
In honor of his clinical expertise, Dr. Dean has been the recipient of On-Time Doctor Award (2014), Patients’ Choice Award (2018, 2017, 2015, 2014), and Compassionate Doctor Recognition (2018, 2017, 2014).
