What Is an Ophthalmologist?

An ophthalmologist is a medical doctor. Ophthalmologists have graduated from medical school and have received additional training in the treatment of the eye and its disorders. Ophthalmologists are licensed to practice medicine and perform surgery. You may be more familiar with optometrists, who perform vision testing and prescribe glasses and contact lenses. Optometrists are not medical doctors.
