Learn more about Optometrists

An optometrist is a healthcare provider who specializes in routine and preventive eye and vision care. Optometrists diagnose vision abnormalities and prescribe eyeglasses and contacts.

An optometrist typically:

  • Evaluates a patient’s medical and vision history

  • Educates the patient about eye and vision disease prevention and health

  • Performs a comprehensive eye and vision exam and evaluates blood pressure

  • Performs and interprets specialized eye tests

  • Diagnoses and often treats acute and chronic eye diseases and conditions that affect vision, including eye injuries, vision problems, cataracts, and glaucoma

  • Screens for conditions that increase the risk of eye and vision conditions including diabetes and high blood pressure

  • Prescribes eye glasses, contacts, and certain medications

  • Refers patients to an ophthalmologist for serious eye problems and most eye surgeries

  • Performs laser or glaucoma surgeries in some cases
