|What is an Optometrist?
Doctors of optometry (ODs) professionals for the eye.
Optometrists examine, diagnose, treat, and manage diseases,
injuries, and associated structures as well as identify related
systemic conditions affecting the eye.
Optometrists prescribe medications, low vision rehabilitation,
vision therapy, spectacle lenses, contact lenses, and perform
certain surgical procedures.
Optometrists counsel their patients regarding surgical and
non-surgical options that meet their visual needs related to their
occupations, avocations, and lifestyle.
An optometrist has completed pre-professional undergraduate
education in a college or university and four years of professional
education at a college of optometry, leading to the doctor of
optometry (O.D.) degree. Some optometrists complete an
optional residency in a specific area of practice.
