There are three types of eye health professionals who are trained to care for the eyes of adults and children:

Ophthalmologists are eye doctors who specialize in the medical and surgical care of the eyes and visual system. They also specialize in the prevention of eye disease and injury. Ophthalmologists can be either Doctors of Medicine (MD) or Doctors of Osteopathy (DO).

Doctors of Optometry, better known as Optometrists, are primary health care professionals. Optometrists examine, diagnose, treat, and manage conditions that relate to the visual system. This would include being able to identify general health conditions that affect the eye, such as diabetes and hypertension.

Opticians are trained professionals who analyze and interpret eye prescriptions; determine the lenses that best meet a person's needs; oversee ordering and verification of eye-related products from start to finish; fit, replace, adjust, repair and reproduce previously ordered contact lenses, eyeglasses and frames.
