Types of Vision Care Providers

Ocularists: are eye care professionals who specialize in the fabrication and fitting of ocular protheses for people who have lost an eye or eyes due to trauma or illness.

Opticians: are optical professionals who fill prescriptions, issued by ophthalmologists and optometrists, for corrective eyewear.  These prescriptions may include eyeglasses, contact lenses, low vision aids and ocular prostheses.

Optometrists: are health care professionals who are state licensed to provide primary eye services.  These services include comprehensive eye health and vision examinations, diagnosis, and treatment of certain eye diseases and disorders of the eye as well as the diagnosis of certain related systemic conditions.  Treatments may include the prescribing of eyeglasses, contact lenses, low vision rehabilitation and medications, and the performing of certain minor surgical procedures.

Ophthalmologists: are physicians (doctor of medicine (M.D.) or doctor of osteopathy (D.O.)) who specialize in the comprehensive care of the eyes and visual system in the prevention of eye disease and injury. The ophthalmologist is the medically trained specialist who can deliver total eye care: primary, secondary and tertiary care services (i.e., vision services, contact lenses, eye examinations, medical eye care and surgical eye care), and diagnose general diseases of the body.
