As a dedicated optometrist, he examines, diagnoses, treats, and manages disorders involving the visual system, including eye injuries and diseases. He prescribes the right contact lenses or eyeglasses as necessary. Also, he provides pre and post-operative care to various patients after an eye surgery, such as examining the eyes of a patient a day after the operation.
If you feel that you need your eyes checked because of discomfort and ailing vision, an optometrist can help you a lot. From simple issues such as irritating floaters to more serious diseases of the retina, it is very important to deal with any issues as soon as possible, before it escalates to more serious conditions. In short, they are the very first ones who you will visit when you experience some troubles in seeing.
