Doctors Of Optometry: Are
doctors with at least 8 years of college study, who specialize in the
management and treatment of the broad scope of eye conditions:
- Eye Disease: Pink Eye (conjunctivitis),
Glaucoma, Cataracts, Iritis, Macular Degeneration,
- Eye Coordination: Reading Issues, caused
by convergence problems,
- Refractive Problems: Prescribing -- Eye Glasses, Contact
Lenses and even low vision aids
- Preventive Care: for the early signs of eye disease.
- We prescribe: Anti-biotics, Anti-inflammatory
drugs, Glaucoma medications and much more.
- The Broad Scope: Because we are licensed to diagnose
and treat eye disease, are trained in the field of optics
and refraction, we are the eye care professionals with
the broadest scope of knowledge and practice skills.
Who people confuse us with:
- Opticians: These
are craftsman (not doctors) who are licensed to make eye glass,
grind and fit lenses and frames. Because in some states
they can employ doctors in their offices.... people confuse optometrists
with them. On the other hand, all optometrists are also
licensed and trained in optical work (as opticians) though few
use these skills other than to supervise opticians.
There are doctors but they are medical doctors who specialize in
eye surgery. There are many types of ophthalmologists. Retina
Specialist, Glaucoma Specialist, Cataract Specialists and
even some general practitioners.
