Who is an Ophthalmologist?
An ophthalmologist is a medical doctor specializing in complete eye care. They receive focused training in areas such as preventative eye care, eye disease treatment, injury treatment, and medical and surgical procedures of the eye.
An ophthalmology specialist would have attended four years of pre-med, four years of medical school, one year of internship and at least three years of specialized training in refractive and surgical procedures. To earn a board certification from the American Board of Ophthalmology, the surgeon must clear exams, complete rigorous training requirements and participate in continuing education programs.
