What is the difference between an optometrist and an ophthalmologist?
Opticians have graduated from an optometry school and are a valuable and easily accessible resource for primary vision care offering routine eye exams. At their optometry office or optical shop they screen for eye problems and provide vision correction and fit eyeglasses. Optometrists can offer designer frames to give you more confidence in wearing glasses and provide a contact lens prescription. An optometrist can refer you to an eye specialist in an eye care clinic if there are complex eye diseases requiring treatment or a form of vision therapy. You may see an optometrist in a hospital or primary care setting providing advanced care together with an ophthalmologist. Optomoetrist provide an excellent job in screening for common retinal disease and medical retina problems. Regular eye exams are important for eye health and to receive information on routine eye care and to update your contact prescription or update your glasses prescription. They usually change an affordable administrative fee for a routine vision exam. You may have an insurance plan with vision insurance that can cover these assessments by your optometrist.
Ophthalmologists are able to provide private patients with laser treatment, medical and surgical eye care. They use the information from the comprehensive eye exam along with their assessment of your eyes with the latest technology including OCT and an understanding of your health problems to provide medical treatment with suitable treatment options. If necessary a surgical procedure may be advised to treat your eye problem or vision changes and maintain healthy vision at a world class private hospital. Eye abnormalities can have a significant impact on vision and appearance.
Health conditions such as age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, diseases like glaucoma affecting the optic nerve and infections from contact lenses can have a significant impact on the ability to see and require an ophthalmologist assessment.
Flashes and floaters are usually harmless but do require an urgent assessment by qualified doctors to exclude a retinal tear or even a retinal detachment which can lead to visual loss and urgent vitreoretinal surgery.
Glaucoma diagnosed late can be advanced and may require glaucoma surgery be a specialist consultant eye surgeon. It rarely presents with blurred vision until the final stages hence the need for screening if you have a family history of the condition.
Macular degeneration if presenting with a sudden drop in vision or distortion would need to be seen urgently as it is a major contributor of visual loss in the United Kingdom. Many assessments and procedures including paediatric ophthalmologist assessments may be covered by your insurance company if you have private healthcare insurance if you have it.
