Frequently Asked Questions

What is an optometrist?

An optometrist is a type of doctor who helps people with anything related to the eye or vision. They will examine your eyes and figure out what is wrong. They can diagnose and treat many types of eye conditions, including medication prescriptions or minor procedures if needed. They can also prescribe glasses or contact lenses to help improve your vision. If necessary they can refer to specialists as well, so they are a great first stop for any eye, vision, or ocular health-related question.
