  • 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
