Who Performs Routine Eye Exams?



Optometrists are trained specifically to diagnose and treat conditions like nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. So, they perform similar examinations to ophthalmologists and are a critical part of the nation’s eye health delivery system, but they are not medical doctors and do not perform eye surgery. After receiving a bachelor's degree, optometrists complete an additional 4 years of training to receive an optometry degree. Some may also spend a year in clinical residency.

Who Performs Routine Eye Exams

The Thomas Eye Group has both ophthalmologists and optometrists working together in an integrated delivery model to give the best eye care.
