What is an Optometrist?



An optometrist, sometimes called an Eye Doctor for short, is a medical professional is works exclusively with vision problems. Optometrists have specialized training and education from an accredited optometry college in a four year course, but have not attended medical school (unlike an Ophthalmologist). They are licensed by each individual state to examine the eyes and to determine the presence of vision problems.

Optometrists specialize in the diagnoses and treatment of vision defects, signs of injuries in the eye, abnormalities of the eye and ocular diseases. They conduct detailed examinations of a patient's eyes, some of which may reveal conditions and problems such as diabetes or high blood pressure that will need to be treated by a medical doctor. From there, they will make an overall health assessment and offer clinical advice when it comes to prescription glasses of contact lenses, if necessary.

Optometrists are also able to dispense, supply and fit said prescription glasses or contacts but depending upon the type of practice, patients may be referred to an optician to get the actual corrective lenses. An optician is a medical professional who is only trained and able to fill the lens prescriptions (both for eye glasses and contacts) given by optometrists and ophthalmologists.

Some common conditions that may be seen in an optometrist's office include:
  • Glaucoma, retinal disorders and cataracts.

  • Nearsightedness, astigmatism, presbyopia, farsightedness and other vision conditions.

  • Hypertension, diabetes and other systemic diseases.

  • Convergence insufficiency and other binocular vision conditions which affect the eye's overall comfort and may cause difficulty reading.

Optometrists also provide various different services for the eyes, such as the following bellow, but are not limited to:
  • Diagnosis and treatment for eye diseases.

  • Removing foreign bodies from the eyes.

  • Provide specialized vision aid for those who are visually impaired.

  • Provide rehabilitative services for those who have impaired vision and suffering from head injuries.

In cases where an eye condition requires more extensive treatment, patients will be referred to a doctor specializing in Ophthalmology.
