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. Jones and his wife, Jenny, have five children and seven adorable grandchildren. Spending time with his family and attending church hold a special place in his heart. 

Beyond his medical profession, Dr. Jones finds solace in the skies as an instrument-rated pilot, often taking to the air in his own airplane during leisure moments. Additionally, his passion for music extends throughout his lifetime, finding joy in both playing and composing music.
