The branch of medicine that specializes in the diagnosis, treatment and care of eye diseases and disorders is called Ophthalmology. The person who we call Eye M.D. is actually an ophthalmologist. Although there are certain types of specialists that deal with the eyes and vision care, an ophthalmologist deals with a broader and more serious medical eye care.
Ophthalmologists— in comparison with optometrists and opticians— underwent intensive medical studies and are licensed to perform medical surgeries. Optometrists on the other hand, are healthcare professionals and not doctors. They provide care and diagnosis through sight-testing and correction; they are the ones whom you go to when you need to have your eyes checked to get eyeglass prescriptions. Opticians are designers who fit eyeglass lenses and frames, contact lenses and other corrective devices.
