Ophthalmologist Vs. Optometrists

M.S., MBBS
Ophthalmologist, Delhi
Ophthalmologist Vs. Optometrists

Eyes are the most important part of our lives. There are various branches of medicine, which treat different aspects of the eye. Chief among them are: 

  1. Ophthalmology
  2. Optometry

Ophthalmology deals with the structure, physiology and diseases of the eye. On the other hand, optometry is a vision care science, which involves the treatment and rectification of the visual system. Specialists emerging from these two schools of medicines are called Ophthalmologists and optometrists respectively. Though, they both deal with the corrective measures and examination of healthy eyes, there are crucial differences between them.

Some of those differences are listed below:

  1. Meaning: A specialist in surgical and medical eye problems, who performs operations in the eye is called an Ophthalmologist. On the other hand, an Optometrist is a specialist who has a degree in Doctor of Optometry (OD). He is not a doctor but a trained individual.   
  2. Area of Specialization: Both these specialists have different areas of specialization. An Ophthalmologist specializes in only vision and eye care. He/she has the necessary training to perform operations on the eye. On the other hand, an Optometrist is not a doctor, but a specialist who is involved in diagnosis, management and treatment of vision changes. He/she has the license to perform eye exams and tests and can prescribe corrective lenses.
  3. Training: Both the specialists differ vastly in their training. An Ophthalmologist is trained to treat all eye problems and is equipped to perform operations. He/she undergoes four years of medical school and one year of internship in any hospital. Optometrists on the other hand, after three or more years in college have to undergo four years of training before receiving a doctor of Optometrist. (OD).

He had a red eyes for 3 days. He also have itching in his left eye. Sometimes both eyes burnt. Suggest what to do?

Red eye has many causes. You have to see if it is associated with blurring of vision, pain, discharge and other complaints. But commonly it's allergic or infective in origin ie allergic or infective conjunctivitis. Which has simple treatment protocol. But still its wise to get a check up done with an ophthalmologist for a thorough slit lamp examination to rule out other differentials for acute red eye.

could be because of many reasons but commonly it is due to allergy or infection. You need to visit eye specialist to differentiate between the two as the treatment is different. Also get your eyes checked for any glass power

Most common cause is having a spectacles power. Just get it checked with nearest eye care specialist. If glass power is there, you will need to wear it. There are no natural medicines available for removal of spectacles.

Hi, Lack of sleep, untimely food and mental tensions are the causes of acidity in your case. Please get rid of mental stress and take adequate sleep. Otherwise, you health will get upset during the exams and you may not be able to write the exams. Do things in a planned way. If you don't sleep for 2-3 days, you will really suffer from eye pain and headache and acidity. So eat in small quantities frequently and take a small nap once in 4-5 hours while studying which will relax your mind and body.

Dear lybrate-user, this is vertigo and is most probably from ear. Probably bppv. You need to visit an ent surgeon and he may do repositioning exercises or give treatment and you will get relief.

Hello lybrate-user. Color blindness tends to occur due to a variety of reasons. Let me enumerate in brief: (1) color blindness since birth/ childhood is more likely to be hereditary and likely to be transmitted. (2) swelling/ lesion in the brain or along the pathway of the optic nerve. This could occur due to injury, tumor, infection in the brain. (3) raised intra-ocular pressure could cause color vision defect. Thus, it is important to identify the cause of color blindness. Certain causes are hereditary and get transmitted to the next generation whereas others are not. Hope my suggestions helped you. Take care-regards.

Hello lybrate-user, first of all you have wear glasses all the time every day otherwise your vision will deteriorate. Do not stress about your spectacle power, just eat lots of green vegetables and fruits. Include fish in your diet (if non vegetarian) or you can take fish liver oil capsules. You can go for lasik surgery for spectacle removal, but only after you are 18 and that too when your number is stable for atleast 6 months. Take care.
