Optometrist vs Ophthalmologist

Optometrists are specialists who are trained to diagnose and treat vision problems as well as some eye conditions. They perform eye examinations and prescribe eyeglasses, contact lenses, low vision aids, vision therapy, and provide pre- and post-operative care. If your optometrist determines you have a serious eye condition or disease, they will refer you to an ophthalmologist.
An ophthalmologist is a medical doctor who specializes in treating eye diseases and eye injuries medically and surgically. Ophthalmologists perform major eye surgery such as LASIK surgery, cataract removal, retinal detachments, and lens implants and prescribes medication. Ophthalmologists can also perform eye exams and prescribe eyeglasses and contact lenses.
Unless you have experienced a major change in your vision or suspect you have a serious eye problem an optometrist is the most logical choice to start with because all you need is routine eye care and exams. Ophthalmologists charge higher fees than optometrists because they are MD's. If you have experienced a major change in your vision or suspect you have a serious eye problem it makes sense to see an ophthalmologist.
