Optometry is a healthcare profession that is autonomous, educated, and regulated (licensed/registered), and optometrists are the primary healthcare practitioners of the eye and visual system who provide comprehensive eye and vision care, which includes refraction and dispensing, detection/diagnosis and management of disease in the eye, and the rehabilitation of conditions of the visual system.
Optometry is a dynamic and challenging profession that provides practitioners the opportunity to help people and at the same time, achieve personal growth, gain community respect, enjoy great work-life balance and financial success.
An optometrist will diagnose and treat eye diseases, prescribe optical devices for vision corrections, direct the pre- and post-operative care of refractive and laser surgery patients, help children with learning disabilities through vision training, and provide vision rehabilitation services to people with severe vision impairments.
