Recommendations For Choosing an Optometrist

Optometrists or doctors of optometry are people who are trained to provide eye care to people.

Problems like farsightedness, astigmatism, and nearsightedness are the ones that are diagnosed and

treated by them. They also evaluate the capability of our eyes to synchronize and focus along with

measuring the perception, colour and depth of our eyes.

According to optometrist in Oshawa it is important that we choose these professionals with some

care since the number and type of services provided by them is of critical nature. Optometrists may

also test for glaucoma and other diseases related to eye along with providing vision care.

Conditions like blood pressure and diabetes which affect our eyes are also tested by them. In case an

optometrist in Oshawa is not able to handle a case, he or she may refer the person to

ophthalmologists or any other doctor if need be. Optometrists also have the right to prescribe some

medications if the need arises.

Patients who have had cataract operation or any corrective surgery are given post operative care by

optometrists. With so many different types of services provided by optometrist it is important that

we consult one who has good reputation and who is known for his expertise in the field.

Most of the optometrist specializes only in providing primary eye care in Ajax, but some of them

also attain expertise in the field of contact lenses, paediatric eye wear, and vision therapy and so on.

At times, some optometrists who have specialization in different areas may join together and

provide comprehensive service.

It must be remembered here that optometrists are not complete doctors and they do not have MD

degree. Optometrists undergo 3 years of study from an accredited college before they can start on

with their training.

When you have to go for eye care in Ajax it is important that you pick an optometrist who has

sufficient amount of experience in the field, but optometrist with good educational qualification can

also be chosen for the treatment.
