Ophthalmologist vs. Optometrist
Must complete 4 years of college, 4 years of medical school and surgical residency (Ophthalmology Specialization) and a fellowship of 1 to 2 years. An ophthalmologist is a medical doctor who specializes in the examination and treatment of the eye. As medical doctors, ophthalmologists are aware of how your ocular health is related to your overall health. They are capable of treating all eye conditions with medications or surgery and also provide routine services such as prescribing glasses or contact lenses.
Must complete 4 years of college and 4 years of Professional School (Doctor of Optometry O.D.) Sometimes called a Doctor of optometry or O.D., an optometrist has completed a professional program but is not a medical doctor. They have not attended medical school and are not licensed to practice medicine, and are not trained or licensed by the board of medicine to perform surgical procedures.
