Houston Optometrists

Optometrists & Optometry: Optometry is a health care profession concerned with eyes and related structures, as well as vision, visual systems, and vision information processing in humans. Optometrists function as primary eye care physicians, but will refer patients to ophthalmologists for necessary invasive treatments (surgery). Ophthalmologists should not be confused with optometrists or opticians. Ophthalmologists are eye surgeons who complete longer residencies, and sometimes even fellowships, who also receive a different doctorate degree, M.D. or D.O. Optometrists are not trained in surgical techniques as a general rule, other than minor foreign body removals. Opticians generally dispense corrective eye wear, and in some cases will also construct the corrective eye wear.
