About the Eye Care Team

Each member of the eye care team plays an important role in making sure you see clearly through your entire life. However, only an Ophthalmologist is a medical doctor, trained in medical school to diagnose and treat the entire range of eye diseases, infections and injuries. This five-minute educational video, “Know Your Eye Care Team,” highlights public's misunderstandings and lack of knowledge about the the "three O's" (ophthalmologists, optometrists and opticians) and addresses the all-too-common confusion among consumers about eye care providers and the different eye health services provided by each...who does what, and who should patients go see?
