Ophthalmology Q & A

What is ophthalmology?

Ophthalmology is a medical specialty focused on eye health and eye-related diseases. To become ophthalmologists, Dr. Starck and Dr. Sepulveda both went to medical school and then spent at least four years training to learn about eye health and care.

An experienced ophthalmologist like Dr. Starck or Dr. Sepulveda can:

  • Diagnose and treat eye diseases
  • Perform eye surgery
  • Prescribe and fit eyeglasses or contact lenses to correct vision

To improve his skill set and provide better care to his patients, Dr. Starck has spent more than 30 years mastering the art of refractive surgery, which includes procedures like laser-assisted in-situ keratomileusis (LASIK) surgery, to correct vision problems. Dr. Starck has also been on the cutting edge of Wavefront technology, which is used to customize LASIK surgery and may soon be used as a tool to better diagnose eye issues.

Dr. Sepulveda is also an eye surgery expert and has received additional training in anterior segment disease, cornea and refractive surgery, and surgical retina procedures. Like Dr. Starck, he is also very involved in the field of ophthalmology and has published numerous articles in scientific journals and textbooks to share his knowledge with his peers.

When would I need to see an ophthalmologist?

At UltraVision, both Dr. Starck and Dr. Sepulveda can take care of just about any eye-related issue you may have. As a full-service eye care center, however, UltraVision may take a team approach when addressing your eye and vision needs, incorporating the expertise of optometrists Cody Harrison, OD and Sara Hyatt, OD.

While the ophthalmologists and optometrists at UltraVision can both take care of your eye needs, if you have an eye condition that requires surgery, you need an ophthalmologist.

What procedures can an ophthalmologist perform?

The ophthalmology team at UltraVision are equipped to manage almost any eye-related surgery, including:

  • Cataract surgery
  • Laser eye surgery, including LASIK
  • Refractive surgery
  • Corneal transplants

UltraVision is an advanced eye care center that strives to provide the latest in medical treatment, and the office is equipped with tools that improve surgical outcomes, including the Zepto® system for cataract surgery and IntraLase® for LASIK.
