Ophthalmologist Summary:
Ophthalmologists are eye doctors who specialize in diagnosing, preventing, and treating diseases and injuries of the eyes. Ophthalmologists are medical doctors or doctors of osteopathy who have chosen the field of vision and the eyes for helping patients.

In addition, ophthalmologists can perform routine eye examinations, dispense advice to patients, and write prescriptions for glasses or contact lenses. Ophthalmologists are also able to prescribe eye drops or drugs to help treat eye infections and diseases.

Ophthalmologists can be considered specialists in both medicine and surgery, as they perform a variety of surgical and nonsurgical interventions to help those who suffer with eye problems.

Ophthalmologist FAQs:
What is an

Ophthalmologist

?
An Ophthalmologist is a physician who performs eye surgery, as well as provides vision care by diagnosing and treating the eye.

Why might I see an Ophthalmologist?

What are some areas that an ophthalmologist can specialize in?
Some of the specialized areas are glaucoma, plastic surgery, cornea diseases, retinal diseases and pediatrics.

What is the difference between an ophthalmologist, optometrist and optician?
These titles are often used interchangeably, but they are quite different and involve different qualifications and practice criteria. An optician mainly works with corrective eye wear and cannot diagnose or treat any condition. An optometrist is a doctor of optometry. While an optometrist may diagnose eye and vision problems, treatment is limited to prescription of corrective eye wear and medications for certain diseases that affect the eye. An optometrist is not a medical doctor. An ophthalmologist is a medical doctor or doctor of osteopathy with a specialization in care of the eyes and vision. An ophthalmologist can perform all of the duties of the other eye professionals, as well as diagnosing and treating conditions and performing surgical interventions when necessary. The ophthalmologist has the most complete training and qualifications for all aspects of eye and vision health.

What is a holistic ophthalmologist?
This is an ophthalmologist who takes a more natural approach to treating eye diseases and injuries. He or she recommends dietary supplements to maintain eye health as well as alternative medicines and procedures such as acupuncture.

How many ophthalmologists are there in the United States?
The International Council of Ophthalmology (ICO) states that there are 25,152 ophthalmologists in the United States as of March 6, 2014.
