About Eye Specialist
An eye specialist is an ophthalmologist. This is a doctor who is qualified and certified to treat and diagnose eye disorders/conditions. They can perform eye surgery, prescribe and fit eyeglasses and contact lenses to be able to solve vision problems. Many eye specialists are in scientific research to find the causes and cures for a variety of eye diseases and disorders to do with vision. To become an ophthalmologist, a person is required to have a degree in medicine and then another four to five years of ophthalmology residency training. Residency training problems for ophthalmology can require a one year pre residency training in pediatrics, general surgery, or internal medicine. They’re also allowed to be able to use laser therapy, treat eye diseases, and perform surgery if needed.
