Most doctors of optometry complete eight years of college: four years of premedical undergraduate education, earning a Bachelor of Science degree and four years of graduate education, earning a Doctorate in Optometry. In addition, many optometrists complete a one-year residency or fellowship program following graduation. Annual continuing education is mandatory for all optometrists to renew their license to practice.
Think of Optometrists for:
- Annual eye health and vision care examinations for all members of the family.
- Problem-solving concerning eyewear and visual comfort.
- Contact lens fitting and follow-up care, including bifocal lenses and lenses to correct astigmatism.
- Relief of symptoms associated with computer use.
- Vision therapy and vision training; a non-surgical option for many eye muscle disorders and focusing problems.
- Treatment of visually impaired patients with optical devices that enhance the remaining vision.
- Diagnosis, treatment and management of eye disease and related systemic conditions.
- Continued care of chronic eye and related systemic diseases.
- Emergency treatment of eye infections and inflammations, including bacterial, viral and allergic conditions and foreign body removals from the eye.
