What Is an Ophthalmologist?

An ophthalmologist (Eye M.D.) is a licensed medical doctor with additional specialized training for over three years in all aspects of eye care — medical, surgical and optical.

How Is an Ophthalmologist Different From an Optometrist and an Optician?

Ophthalmologists are different from optometrists and opticians in their training and in what they can diagnose and treat. As a medical doctor, an ophthalmologist is licensed to practice medicine and surgery. An ophthalmologist diagnoses and treats all eye diseases, performs eye surgery, and prescribes and fits glasses and contact lenses. Ophthalmologists complete:

  • 4 years of college
  • 4 years of medical school, including over 2 years of hospital and clinic-based training
  • 1 year of internship, including hospital-based medical and surgical training
  • 3 years of residency (hospital and clinic-based training) in the diagnosis and medical and surgical treatment of eye disorders.
