What is an Ophthalmologist?
Know Who is Taking Care of Your Eyes
When you go to "get your eyes checked," there are a variety of eye care providers you might see. Ophthalmologists, optometrists, and opticians all play an important role in providing eye care services. However, each group has different levels of training and expertise; you should be sure you are seeing the right provider for your condition or treatment.
