Apart from being very hard to spell, like an optometrist, they have usually taken three years of college plus eight years of specialized medical training, resulting in a university degree referred to as a Medical Doctor or “MD”.

Ophthalmologists can be thought of as a specialized eye doctor.  While they can perform the same functions as an optometrist, they have medical skills to take care of specific eye problems that may require surgery.

Ophthalmologists can:

  • Perform a sight test (reading the letters on the chart)
  • Examine the eye using various instruments and technology
  • Diagnose eye diseases.
  • Prescribe medications to treat the eye disease.
  • Write prescriptions for eyeglasses and contact lenses
  • Perform eye surgery
