Dr. Dawnielle Kerner provides information on macular degeneration. No more misconceptions!
Ophthalmology is the study of medical conditions related to the eye. Ophthalmologists differ from optometrists and opticians in their levels of training and expertise. As a medical doctor who has completed college and at least eight years of additional medical training, an ophthalmologist is licensed to practice medicine and surgery. This advanced training allows ophthalmologists to diagnose and treat all eye diseases, perform eye surgery, and prescribe and fit eyeglasses and contact lenses to correct vision problems. Many ophthalmologists are also involved in scientific research on the causes and cures for eye diseases and vision disorders. If you have concerns about your eyes or vision, see an ophthalmologist. A complete eye exam is the first step toward saving your sight.
