My husband and I are moving to Charlottesville in late July. He will be working at UVA. I would love referrals for great OBGyns, primary care physicians, and ophthalmologist that are in the UVA healthcare network.
Important to me is that they are ... inclusive, if that makes sense? Studies show gender bias in treatment in healthcare settings, and this is even more acute for minority women (I'm Latina). I bring this up because it has, on occasion, been a problem for me.
Thank you in advance. We are so excited to move down there.
I've decided to pursue Ophtalmology but before I start my Journey I'd like to hear thoughts and experiences from fellow Doctors or College Students that started the short 12-year journey.
Any tips or advice would be very helpful.
If there are any Doctors of any kind please also leave a response, I'd appreciate to hear your thoughts and opinions also!
Edit: I don't know much of the career, I'm just very interested and would like to hear more about it.
tl;dr I would like to be more informed about the career from experienced people because I would like to pursue it.
after a few months of working with my GP and an optometrist, we decided to get referred to a specialist. idk if it will help or not, but hopefully the doc will be able to help somehow.
I've been going to the same ophthalmologist for a number of years, and continued to do so even after we moved from the NW side to SE Indy. Unfortunately, the practice is closing its near-downtown office leaving only the NW side and Carmel offices, so I'm looking for a new eye doc on the south side, preferably near Southport or Beech Grove. Any suggestions?

So, I've never had any problems with my eyes until now at 30 years old. I'm looking for a better picture of ophthamologists who take medicaid in the acadiana area because I need to make an appointment to check what's going on in my right eye. I've looked up reviews on everyone including Azar, Lahaye, Blem, and the two different Casanovas. They all have a bunch of five star reviews and a bunch of one star reviews, so I'm looking for a recommendation based on personal experience.
Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
As Im bored out of mind right now on lockdown I thought I would use this as an opportunity to join in on this series.
Background: I'm currently a PGY-3 in Ophthalmology. I'm very happy with my decision to become an ophthalmologist. I was battling in medical school with multiple specialties. Initially at the very beginning of medical school I was contemplating general surgery and even neurosurgery. As I continued throughout medical school I realized I really enjoyed the anatomy of the head and neck and special senses. So at this point Neurosurgery, ENT, facial plastics, and ophthalmology were on the table. I then had the opportunity to do some orbital anatomy research which got me very interested in ocular pathology. As I started to explore ophthalmology and the pathology that is encountered and the types of surgeries that they perform, the more interested in it I became. During my 4th year of medical school I had a really hard time between ENT, plastics, and ophthalmology as there w... keep reading on reddit ➡
"Your results aren't good" i said
"Can i see them, doc ?" The man replied
"No, probably not" i confirmed

Does anybody have recommendations for a good eye doc in Tulsa?
So in the past few days, I've noticed the floaters that appeared after a laser eye injury (DJ laser, class 3B with RGB) began to move towards my central vision. It's definitely a bother as it covers the vision in my left and it makes it really hard to see.
Tl;dr had mystery eye problem that was never given a diagnosis. Mostly fixed with surgery and anti-inflammatories about 10 years ago. Seen an old picture of myself yesterday and realised my eye problem is back.
I probably saw every major eye doctor in the UK and no one could diagnose it... fancy a go?
Apologies if this isn't well worded, my main bulk of treatments/assessments were when I was between the age of about 11-16, so being a child I didnt really care what was happening and let the doctors speak to my parents for the most part.
I'm now 26/F in case it's relevant.
Okay so I was born with perfectly normal eyes as far as we know. Plenty of pictures of me from multiple angles showing that my eyes both move in all directions absolutely fine.
Around the age of 10/11 (I think), my parents noticed I would hold my head at a weird angle and that the inner corner of my right eye would get quite red. I remember it being slightly itchy and it would water a lot.
Went to get it looked... keep reading on reddit ➡
I am trying to find someone that can do an emergency visit this weekend. She is losing her sight in one eye and we just moved here from Chicago. The ER wasn’t helpful because she would need to see a specialist. Any help would be amazing.
Mannheim man: Hi, I’m an eye man.
Hello everyone! I decided to post bc I’m seeing a neuro ophthalmologist tomorrow and I want to make sure I’m asking the right questions. I’ve been dealing with floaters for 2 years now. Always checked up on them to make sure there wasn’t any underlying issue causing them. Retina seemed fine and my optometrist told me it was probably bc of my near-sightness and age. I’m only 26 years old but okay whatever. I went to 2 other doctors for more opinions and they all said my eyes were fine. Fast forward to May 2020 when I started noticing flashes too. Every time I move my right eye, I can see like this circle outline of a flash. In places with bright lights I see halos around people and I feel like I can see two bright spots in the center of my vision. It goes away when I blink, but it’s very scary. I also started getting frequent headaches, bad eye pain, and like my eyes get shaky when I try to focus. They’ve been twitching like crazy lately. My neurologist ordered an MRI for me , and it ca... keep reading on reddit ➡
I need to find new eye doctors, so if any of y’all have ophthalmologists you like please comment!!
I was wondering if any of you had opthamologists that you’d recommend in the cville area? (also flexible to drive up to 2 hours away)
would seriously appreciate any recommendations as I’m not originally from this area!
Then he asked me: “and then what?”
Well, I said, then I’ll see...
Hi. Yesterday Ophthalmology reddit. Adrian here. I went to the Ophthalmologist. I said to the Dr. that i have eye pain on my left eye for like 3 years. During the quarantine i used a lot my phone and my PC and i experienced a decrease in my central vision when the light are out. I recieved like 4 droplets so it can grow the size of my pupil. Am also sensible to harsh light like camera flashes and phone lantern light. I also experience negative after image, visual snow in the dark and palinopsia in the dark with sources of light. The Dr. used a machine to watch into my pupils that used bright light and it bothered my a lot she turned to the minimum when she saw that it bothered me. I looked directly into the light and she said to look at her ear not at the light i stared at the light for like 4 seconds or so. Since yesterday i noticed a new shape of irregular form like little bubbles on my left eyes appearing when i turn on the light. It disappears quickly but every time when i switch... keep reading on reddit ➡
10 yo Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, 17 lbs, neutered with a history of MVD stage 2B (treated with pimobemdan), complete hearing loss, and ulcers in his left eye that have been treated over the past few years. A recent eye stain (3 weeks ago) showed that his latest ulcer has cleared up. Yay!
However, for the past 3 months, he has been developing a heavy film over his left eye, and a small amount on his right, several times a day which I have been gentling cleaning with eye wash. Since he can't hear me, I'm worried about his compromised vision but also want to ensure not to cause any scratches or further ulcers. His primary vet was fairly confident that this was due to clogged tear ducts and referred us to a canine opthalmologist. She also said that giving him tear drops would be the best way to treat him in the meantime.
Unfortunately, I was laid off at the beginning of this epidemic and really don't have the funds for a $400 opthalmology visit (which, unfortunately, the expensive Ba... keep reading on reddit ➡
I have Eyemed insurance and looking for a place to get prescription glasses with modern and great selections of frames. Thanks
It's beyond time for some new glasses. I've been delaying it until my insurance kicked in, but due to hard times, I've had to reset that clock yet again.
I know the timing is crappy, but is anyone doing eye exams? Being able to read and pick out tiny objects kinda important to my job (essential worker, non-medical). My prescription is 4 years out of date and I don't think my vision can outlast the shelter in place order, especially if it goes well into May.
Is this a secondary school after vet school or can they be taken concurrently?
Do they solely work with eyes or do they do regular vet stuff too?
Is there a residency?
Are there websites where he can tutor students in residency, or other things like that? He already does some research surveys. Any and ALL ideas welcome! (Also would love advice/insight into telehealth)
Hi everyone. I had my eyes dilated by my ophthalmologist. When I got home I was looking at my phone and at my computer and I was in the bathroom with a bright light on. Will these things damage my eyes or my retina because my pupil is dilated?
I'm writing because I'm really stuck and I need help. I work in pharma. My company has launched a new aciclovir eye ointment that is now the only available ointment in the treatment of herpetic keratitis in the UK since Zovirax was discontinued at the end of 2018. I'm trying to communicate this with ophthalmologists in the UK but I keep hitting dead ends. The RCOphth won't respond to emails and we're trying to tell people that this is now available and can treat up to 40,000 patients in the UK each year that need this medication. What's the best way to reach you guys?
Any and all insight appreciated!
I (32/F) was diagnosed with shingles via telemedicine this past Thursday. The blisters/rash are on my scalp, forehead, browline and in my eye socket. The telemedicine doctor said that I should visit an ophthalmologist “soon” because he suspects I have eye involvement. (My eye itself is painful, waters and is light sensitive.) I have taken four doses of antivirals but am still unfortunately experiencing new patches of blisters. Assuming there are any ophthalmologists still open, do I need to wait until I am no longer experiencing symptoms before I try to schedule an appointment? I’m just not sure what the protocol is. Any advice from others would be welcome, thanks!
and the place I made an appointment to go to rescheduled a month and 2 weeks due to Corvid.
Another issue is I don't have insurance =(

Hey reddit sorry for the long post ahead but please help I don’t know what else to do. I know there are other more serious problems than mine but I’m getting frustrated as I’ve been to two doctors already and nothing has changed. I keep getting sties in both eyes constantly. And I’m talking about huge ones that make my entire eyelid inflamed and also ones than look like tiny pimples. The bottom of my eyelids also look really red. Every night it seems like there are new ones. This has been going on since dec2019 and I visited the first doctor in January.
First doctor told me all I had to do to fix it was to start washing lash lines with baby shampoo and that should fix everything. Wrong. It did nothing, sties kept coming back.
Went to a different doctor in February and he said I have “bugs” in my eyes that are “peeing” and I’m “allergic to their pee.” He said that after looking at me for .5 seconds but he actually prescribed me something for it- steroid and antibiotic drops (Alrex&am... keep reading on reddit ➡

Hey there! So my dad is an telehealth ophthalmologist and unfortunately, due to COVID-19, he hasn't been having as much work lately. A lot of his pareitnets are reluctant to come into the office and his surgeries have been cancelled. He has been using Telehealth and bit, but could use some more. Any ideas for how he could better market this/get more patients on Telehealth? It'd be great for him to do consultations but he's just unsure because he would have to get people's insurance and he doesn't have lots of equipment...any insight would be great for how he can start doing consulting and getting more patients. Thanks!
