Ophthalmologists
By Jennifer Kenny
  

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.
 
5     Ophthalmologists start with a bachelor's degree from a college or university. Then they attend medical school for four years and complete an internship. After passing exams, they are qualified to practice medicine. To become an ophthalmologist, they need to go on and complete a 3-year residency in ophthalmology. After this they can prescribe medication, practice in their field, and perform surgery, too. Some ophthalmologists go on to become board certified ophthalmologists. They have an incredible amount of higher education and practice in taking care of the eyes.
