What is an Optometrist

An Optometrist is known as an O.D. (doctor of optometry) and is highly trained not only in vision but also in the health of the eye. Optometrists are your primary eye care providers and if a well trained Optometrist notices a problem that he or she cannot handle then they generally refer to an Ophthalmologist (M.D.) for  a surgical procedure. 

Optometry Training and Education

Becoming an Optometrist  requires an undergraduate degree and then 4 years of Optometry School.  The Optometrist can then choose either to begin practicing or perform a one year residency in a specific category of eye-care. Generally these are the students who have exemplified exceptional academic performance during Optometry School. 

Optometric training covers the entire spectrum of eye care. Optometrists are trained to do thorough eye exams to prescribe glasses or contact lenses and  offer medical treatment for assorted eye problems. They also take an active role in conducting scientific research on eye diseases and other serious vision problems. Optometrists work to uncover causes behind these things and find cures.

Optometrists are known as the "experts" when it comes to prescribing the correct spectacle and contact lens  perscription.
