Opthametry (Ophthalmology + Optometry)
Almost 88.4 million people with moderate or severe distance vision impairment or blindness due to unaddressed refractive error and 826 million people with near vision impairment caused by unaddressed presbyopia. This figure is amongst the 1 billion people with avoidable vision impairment or blindness.
- Optometrists are the first line of care for your eye health. They perform routine eye exams, prescribe corrective lenses, and know when a person needs to see an ophthalmologist.
- Ophthalmologists are medical doctors that specialize in the care of more complex eye disorders and perform eye surgery if required.
- Optometrists and ophthalmologists often work together in the same office and collaborate to provide good, cost-effective eye care.
