Understanding Ophthalmology

Ophthalmologists evaluate your eyes, similarly to an optometrists, by conducting your vision examinations, prescribing medicine, and go a bit further in their education. These professionals are either Medical Doctors or Doctors of Osteopathic Medicine. In addition to the accolades of an optometrist, these men and women attend medical school, a year of internship work, and at least three years of resident work in a hospital environment.

Understanding Opticians

Although not as academically rigorous, opticians typically receive training (varies state by state) to be able to fix lenses and sell eye wear in accordance with what your eye doctor has prescribed.
