An ophthalmologist, commonly known as an eye doctor, is a medical practitioner specifically trained to diagnose, treat, and perform surgeries for conditions related to eyes. This differs from an optometrist and optician in that the former is a healthcare professional licensed to take eye and vision tests and provide with corrective lenses, but is not a medical doctor, whereas, an optician is trained to make the glasses based on the prescription of an ophthalmologist or optometrist, but cannot perform eye tests or treat them.
You are referred to an ophthalmologist for any eye discrepancy like a stye, chalazion, glaucoma, dry eyes, misalignment of eyes, bulged eyes, excessive tear production, eye cancer, refractive surgery, etc. The following tests will be performed by the physician such as visual acuity, slit lamp tests, intraocular pressure, refraction, ultrasonography, glaucoma tests and certain other tests based on the requirement.
The treatment provided will be based on the condition ranging from provision of corrective glasses, laser treatment to surgical procedures. With recent technological development, it has become easy to consult an eye care specialist online by sharing the images of visible conditions, taking an online vision test, or just explaining the problem to get a basic and primary knowledge of the problem and its solution.
