What is an Optometrist?

Doctors of Optometry are primary healthcare providers who specialize in the examination, diagnosis, treatment (prescribing), management and prevention of diseases and disorders of the visual system, the eye and associated structures, as well as the diagnosis of ocular manifestations of systemic disease. You do not need a referral from your family doctor in order to have an eye examination.
