1     Edward normally saw an optometrist for his vision check-up. This year, though, he decided he was tired of his glasses and wanted to have LASIK surgery performed. An optometrist can't do surgery. So Edward was referred to a doctor who could. Who was that? It was an ophthalmologist.
2     Terry suffered from cataracts. She needed to have cataract surgery performed. Who performed the surgery? An ophthalmologist did.
3     Suzanne needed a new prescription for her contact lenses. While an optometrist could do this for her, she felt more comfortable using a medical doctor. What kind of doctor was this? It was an ophthalmologist.
4     Ophthalmologists and optometrists both care for the human eye. Ophthalmologists are medical doctors. They have specialized training, so they are also qualified to do surgery.
