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, and corneal surgery.
Happily married, Dr. Seefeldt has two wonderful kids and a dog. She loves being active and enjoys listening to music, kayaking, skiing, walking, running, and swimming. She also loves creating art. If she is not outside with her family, most likely she will be inside painting.
