What is an Ophthalmologist?

When do you need to see an eye doctor? And which type of eye doctor should you see? There are three different specialists in the field, each with different degrees of medical education and expertise. Here’s how to tell which eye doctor will suit your needs best:

  • Opticians are experts in glasses, lenses, contacts and so on. They don’t perform diagnostics or provide eye treatment
  • An optometrist is an expert with a DO (Doctor of Optometry) degree, someone who carries out eye examinations, writes prescriptions for glasses or contacts, and identifies and sometimes prescribes drugs for some eye problems and diseases
  • The most skilled and well-trained of all is called an ophthalmologist, a fully-trained doctor specialising in diseases and disorders of the eye. They can do everything an optometrist can, but they also practice medicine as well as performing surgical and other procedures. This page covers what an ophthalmologist does
