Why Choose an Optometrist over an Ophthalmologist?
Optometrists (OD) are trained vision specialists who perform refractions to determine proper glasses prescriptions, detect and diagnosis ocular disease, and examine and treat the functional performance of your vision and how your brain interprets what it sees (i.e., visual perception). Ophthalmologists (MD) focus on surgery and treatment of ocular disease. They can perform refractions but are typically not, however, trained in functional vision performance.
Your eye health is of upmost importance to us in addition to your visual performance. A thorough eye exam is the first line of defense for identifying many diseases at an early stage, when symptoms are minor or not yet present. As your primary eyecare specialist, Optometrists are trained to diagnose ocular diseases and infections, including glaucoma, retinal detachment, and cataracts. Optometrists in the state of Oregon are licensed to prescribe medications for ocular infections such as conjunctivitis ("pink eye"). We work closely with many Ophthalmologists to whom we regularly refer patients when surgical intervention or treatment of retinal issues is required. Our doctors also co-manage cataract and laser refractive surgeries with Ophthalmologists.
