Vision health is critical to the residents of Las Cruces. Las Cruces is home to more than 20 highly accomplished optometrists and ophthalmologists, also known as eye doctors. The eye doctor has a specialized practice that works with treatment and prevention of eye damage, injury, and disease. Although both are qualified doctors, an ophthalmologist is more into the disease care and surgery part of the practice and an optometrist works more with the correction of eyesight. In Las Cruces, there are state-of-the-art facilities that offer general examinations, consultations, and consultations for the LASIK procedure. Many of the offices include shops that have fashionable glasses and sunglasses available.
