Frequently Asked Questions
Ophthalmologists are medical doctors who focus on both vision and eye health.
Ophthalmologists are qualified to conduct eye examinations, identify and treat eye diseases, recommend medications to guarantee proper eye care, and carry out procedures on the eyes, such as refractive surgery.
Ophthalmologists can also issue contact lenses and glasses prescriptions.
An optometrist is a primary health care practitioner for routine eye care, including vision testing, correction, diagnosis, and management of vision changes. While an optometrist can check, identify, and treat visual problems in your eyes, they cannot perform more complex eye surgeries.
You can visit your optometrist for routine checkups or medicine and treatment for certain eye disorders, as well as basic eye care services like prescription eyeglasses and contact lenses. Optometrists frequently identify eye issues like cataracts or excessive blood pressure and refer their patients to ophthalmologists for further treatment.
Ophthalmologists are medical professionals that treat eye disorders such as cataracts, laser vision correction, glaucoma, retina, and strabismus surgery, among others, with both medicinal and surgical interventions. Ophthalmologists have more specialised training than optometrists and opticians and therefore offer a wider range of diagnoses and treatments.
If you notice any of the following symptoms, contact an ophthalmologist as soon as possible.
- Vision loss or deterioration in one or both eyes
- Vision changes such as abrupt spots, flashes, lightning streaks, jagged lines of light, wavy or watery vision, distorted faces, distortions, or wavy lines, or double vision
