What are Optometrists and Ophthalmologists?
Optometrists examine the eyes for any defects or abnormalities that would affect eyesight. They can diagnose and manage various eye diseases, but any disorders detected outside of their treatment scope are referred to ophthalmologists, who are eye doctors that can perform surgery, laser therapy and can otherwise medically treat eye disease.
