What you should know about optometry and ophthalmology

  • Optometrists and ophthalmologists are doctors specializing in eye care, including basic vision care and correction, diagnosis of sight-related problems and surgery.
  • Changes in eye health can be an early sign of debilitating conditions or diseases, such as diabetes.
  • Pediatric eye care is especially important, since many common childhood eye conditions can be easily corrected if they’re caught early.
