What is an Optometrist
Optometrists are primary health care specialists trained to examine the eyes to detect defects in vision, signs of injury, ocular diseases or abnormality and problems with general health.
A detailed examination of the eye can reveal conditions such as high blood pressure or diabetes.
Optometrists make a diagnosis, offer advice and when necessary prescribe, fit and supply contact lenses or glasses.
Referrals for specialists advice may be required
Once optometrists have qualified they have the opportunity to develop their interests in specialist aspects of practice such as paediatrics, contact lenses, low vision,
Optometrists can choose to practice in a number of settings for example in independent or private practice, in a hospital eye department or in research or teaching.
Optometrists( in Europe) are graduates who have undertaken a three or four-year degree course in optometry followed by a period of at least a year in supervised practice before taking professional qualifying examinations which lead to registration.
Optometrists (previously known as ophthalmic opticians) test sight and prescribe
glasses; they also screen patients for signs of ocular disease and refer them to medical practitioners for treatment when necessary. They are skilled in monitoring patients suffering from eye disease.
Optometrists provide eyecare in the community and by doing so they often relieve the burden on hospital ophthalmologists.
Optometrists are also qualified to dispense spectacles, fit contact lenses and prescribe low vision aids.
Next, they must attend an accredited 4-year optometry school and, after graduation, they must pass written and clinical state board examinations. Some optometrists go on to obtain a master’s degree or Ph.D. in visual science, physiological optics, neurophysiology, or public health. A 1-year postgraduate clinical residency is available for optometrists who want to specialize in one of the follog areas: Contact lenses Family practice optometry Geriatric optometry Hospital-****d optometry Ocular disease Pediatric optometry Primary care optometry Vision therapy
Key Skills for Studying Optometry
A number of key skills are essential for a career within optometry:
- The ability to understand and apply scientific principles and methods
- A high degree of accuracy
- Good organisational and administrative skills
- The ability to keep up to date with scientific and technological developments
- Attention to detail

Dispensing Opticians provide spectacles on the basis of a pre******ion produced by an optometrist or ophthalmic medical practitioner.
Some dispensing opticians dispense
low vision aids and some are qualified to fit contact lenses under instruction from an optometrist.
Ophthalmologists are doctors who specialize in diseases of the eye and most also undertake eye surgery.
In general they work within hospital eye departments.
Orthoptists treat disorders of binocular vision and work in eye departments under the supervision of ophthalmologists.
They may also undertake visual screening of children in the community.
