Field of Ophthalmology: Ensuring a Clear Future

“Going to the eye doctor” can mean a variety of things. Will you see an optometrist, an ophthalmologist, or an optician? Or, all three?

According to Dr. Charlene Chang, ophthalmologist with Oroville Hospital, each has a very specific job in regards to eye health. “An ophthalmologist is a physician who’s gone through medical school, internship, and residency and is trained in medical and surgical ophthalmology—so treating medical diseases and doing surgeries on the eye,” she explains. “Optometrists are trained to specifically make and test for glasses and contacts, and they also deal with the health of the eye, but their specialty is more in the glasses field.”

An optician is someone who takes the information that either the optometrist or ophthalmologist has acquired and helps the patient pick out frames, makes lenses with contacts, and assists with the final selection of optical supplies.
