How to find an ophthalmologist?
WHAT IS AN OPHTHALMOLOGIST?
An ophthalmologist is a medical specialist who diagnoses and treats disorders of the eye and visual system.
Ophthalmologists are trained and registered to provide total care of eyes: from performing comprehensive eye examinations to prescribing corrective lenses, diagnosing diseases and disorders of the eye, and carrying out the medical and surgical procedures necessary for their treatment.
Ophthalmologists practice medicine and surgery — providing both primary care and highly specialised treatment. They are the only providers of laser and surgical correction of eye disorders.
