Eye Care Tips


An eye care professional is an individual who provides a service related to the eyes or vision. It is a general term that can refer to any healthcare worker involved in eye care, from one with a small amount of post-secondary training to practitioners with a doctoral level of education.

In a gross oversimplification, it can be said that ophthalmologists treat eye diseases while optometrists treat vision. This allows for considerable overlap in care because most eye diseases affect vision, and many problems with vision are signs of disease. Laws regarding licensure vary by location, but typically ophthalmologists are licensed to provide the same care as an optometrist, with the addition of surgical options. In most locations surgery is the biggest difference between the two professions.
