Do you need an Ophthalmologist?
Ophthalmologists are physicians with advanced training, who specialize in diseases and disorders of the eyes. Unlike Optometrists, Ophthalmologists are trained to diagnose and treat a wider variety of eye-related conditions, and even perform surgical procedures on the eyes if necessary. Ophthalmologists can also prescribe you your contact lenses and eye glasses like an Optometrist can. Ophthalmologists are a great resource for all of your eye-care needs and concerns!
