Who is an Optometrist?
An Optometrist is the primary provider of vision care. They have completed a degree in Optometry and have spent a minimum of 4 years in study before qualifying. They are registered with the General Optic Council who oversee standards and codes of practice within the profession. An optometrist can examine and diagnose vision difficulties or diseases of the eye. They can test and prescribe spectacles or contact lenses and other medical treatments.
Some Optometrists choose to specialise and undertake further training and qualifications. A prescribing Optometrist can prescribe medications for the treatment of various eye conditions and has become an ‘eye GP’ in effect. Other specialities can include Paediatrics including School Vision, Glaucoma and Medical Retina including Age Related Macula Degeneration.
