Types of eye doctors

  • An ophthalmologist is a medical doctor or an osteopathic physician (MD or DO) who specializes in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of eye and vision problems, including performing surgeries to improve or prevent vision-related conditions. Ophthalmologists receive extensive training in eye care; From performing eye exams and prescribing glasses to complex eye surgeries.
  • An optometrist is an eye care professional, trained to detect vision defects, signs of injury and prescribe corrective lenses. They are not medical doctors (MD or DO), but they do have a Doctor of Optometry degree. Many states in the U.S. allow optometrists to perform procedures such as laser treatment, prescribe medication and administer anesthesia. Visit the American Optometric Association website to check if your optometrist is eligible to perform these additional procedures in your state.

The type of doctor you choose to visit depends on the nature of your needs. If you want to go in for a routine checkup, you can choose between an optometrist and an ophthalmologist. However, an ophthalmologist is more suited for specific vision-related problems or procedures.
