Description

Optometry is a healthcare profession that specializes on the eyes and related structures, as well as vision, visual systems, and vision information processing in humans. Optometrists (also known as Doctors of Optometry or Ophthalmic Opticians depending on the country) are trained to prescribe and fit lenses to improve vision, and in some countries are trained to diagnose and treat various eye diseases.
