An Optometrist Beyond The Optical

OPTOMETRIST

This post will describe what an Optometrist does beyond the optical of eyeglasses and contact lenses. Optometrists detect, diagnose, and treat vision conditions and eye diseases.

MINOR SURGICAL PROCEDURES

Procedures to remove foreign bodies such as metal from the surface of the eye or under the eyelid.

PRE-OPERATIVE AND POST-OPERATIVE MANAGMENT

Pre-operative and post-operative care for Lasik and cataract eye surgery.

DIAGNOSING EYE DISEASES

Cataracts, diabetic eye complications, glaucoma, macular degeneration, and retinal tears and detachments can all be detected through routine eye examinations by an optometrist.

MANAGEMENT OF EYE DISEASES

Conjunctivitis, dry eye, glaucoma, macular degeneration, and uveitis are just some of the eye diseases that are routinely managed by optometrists.
