Optometry is an independent profession in eye care. Its practice includes a complete examination of the visual system required for the estimation of refractive errors. It also covers the Fitting, manufacturing and supplying of spectacles, contact lenses and all other optical aids.
Optometry is a health care profession that is autonomous, educated and regulated (licensed/registered), and optometrists are the primary health care 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. World Council of Optometry
An optometrist is a primary health care professional who is institutionally educated and clinically trained in the art and science of optometry. He is required to examine the eyes and the visual system, diagnose the visual problem, prescribe and provide remedial, corrective treatment.
If any pathological condition is detected during the examination, the optometrist refers the patient to an ophthalmologist (ophthalmic surgeon) for medical therapy and/or surgical correction.
Optometrist practice does not only include the determination of the refractive status of the eyes, prescribing and dispensing of glasses, it has a wider scope than that. With the advance of technology, and newer products being introduced in quick succession, an optometrist is also required to upgrade his knowledge continuously. For an optometrist to be a thorough professional, his optometrist education through the proper channels is very important.
