Our Ophthalmologists

What is

An Optometrist?

An optometrist is an eye care professional specializing in eye care. They have to complete a Doctor of Optometry (OD) program, which is typically a four-year graduate program completed after undergraduate studies. Unlike ophthalmologists, optometrists are not considered medical doctors.

They can still conduct a wide range of eye care services, like performing eye exams, diagnosing and treating eye conditions, prescribing medications for certain eye conditions, fitting patients for visual aids, and providing pre- and post-operative care for patients undergoing eye procedures.

What is the difference between an

An ophthalmologist and Optometrist?

The main difference between an ophthalmologist and an optometrist is their education, training, and scope of practice. An ophthalmologist is a medical doctor who has gone to medical school and completed a specialized residency in ophthalmology, while an optometrist has a Doctor of Optometry (OD) degree.

Only ophthalmologists are licensed to perform surgical procedures on the eyes, like LASIK, RLE, and cataract surgery. Optometrists do not receive the same surgical training, meaning they cannot perform surgery.

Eye Conditions We Treat

Man Eye Strain

Nearsightedness

Nearsightedness, also known as myopia, is a common vision condition where close objects appear clearly, but distant objects seem blurry. It occurs when the eyeball is too long or the cornea has excessive curvature.

Woman Eye Strain

Farsightedness

Farsightedness, medically termed hyperopia, is a vision condition where distant objects are seen more clearly than close ones. It happens when the eyeball is shorter than usual, or the cornea has too little curvature.

Looking Through Glasses

Astigmatism

Astigmatism is a refractive error where the eye doesn’t focus light evenly onto the retina, resulting in distorted or blurred vision. This occurs due to irregularities in the cornea’s shape or sometimes the curvature of the lens.

Presbyopia

Presbyopia is an age-related condition causing difficulty in focusing on close objects. It happens due to the natural hardening of the lens in the eye, reducing its flexibility.

Eye With Dry Eye

Dry Eye

Dry eye syndrome occurs when there are inadequate tears to nourish and lubricate the eye. It can cause discomfort, a gritty sensation, redness, and blurry vision.

Eye With a Cataract

Cataracts

Cataracts are cloudy areas in the eye’s lens that can cause blurred vision. They typically develop slowly and can eventually interfere with vision if left untreated.

Eye With Keratoconus

Keratoconus

Keratoconus is a progressive eye disease where the cornea thins and bulges into a cone-like shape, distorting vision. It often leads to nearsightedness and astigmatism.
