What is an Ophthalmologist?
An ophthalmologist is a medical doctor who specializes in the medical and surgical treatment of eye diseases or other conditions. Ophthalmologists also often provide routine vision care services such as prescribing eyeglasses and contact lenses. The training required to become an ophthalmologist includes at least four years of medical school (after undergraduate college); a one-year internship in general medicine, usually at a hospital; and a three-year residency in ophthalmology at an accredited teaching program.Learn More About Our Ophthalmologists
What is an Optometrist?
Doctors of Optometry are health care providers that examine, diagnose and treat disorders of the eye and associated structures. Our optometrists provide comprehensive eye examinations; prescribe glasses, contact lenses and medications for eye conditions not requiring surgery. Optometric education generally consists of four years of undergraduate study and an additional four years of optometry school. Some optometrists complete post graduate residencies in special areas of interest. All optometrists must complete a multi part national board examination and practical skills assessment before becoming licensed.Learn More About Our Optometrists
