Ophthalmologists AustraliaOphthalmologists are involved in the anatomy, physics, diseases and treatment of the eyeball. Ophthalmologists might also be called optometrists, opticians, oculists, eye doctors, eye surgeons, eye specialists, medical specialists, qualified medical practitioners, cataract surgeons, refractive surgeons, retina specialists, osteopathic medicine doctors or vision doctors. Ophthalmologists are experts in medicine and surgery. Eye doctors can treat astigmatism, hyperopias, retinal detachment, macular degeneration and retinal tears.

Vision is one of the five senses used to understand the world. Depth perception is an essential skill for those who drive automobiles, fly airplanes or operate forklifts. If you have some serious problems with your eyes, then you may need to see an ophthalmologist. Ophthalmologists can provide the following services: comprehensive eye exam, capsulotomy, blade-free procedures, vision correction, Lasik surgery, cataract surgery, day surgery, glaucoma treatment, diabetes eye screening, cosmetic surgery, reconstructive surgery, ASLA correction, ICL implantable lens, oculoplastic surgery, injections for facial spasms (blephaurospasm) and minimally invasive surgeries. As you age, you are likely to have more problems with your eyesight.

Some people become confused with the terms ophthalmologists, optometrists and opticians. Basically, the ophthalmologist is the general medical and surgical doctor who can do everything that the others can do and specialize in diagnosing eye diseases. You should be able to get the full range of eye care from an ophthalmologist, including contact lenses and prescription glasses. The optometrists are also medical doctors who can perform eye tests. The optician is more likely to focus specifically on eye wear.

Blurry vision could be the sign of a more serious disease, you might want to see an eye doctor for diagnosis. Another popular treatment is Lasik (laser) surgery. This might allow you to get rid of contact lenses or glasses, by improving your vision dramatically.

Ophthalmologists might have earned a Bachelor of Applied Science or Masters of Health Ethics, Medicine, Medical Training, Surgery, Ophthalmology or Osteopathic Medicine. Eye doctors might be fellows of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons, Royal Australian & New Zealand College of Ophthalmologists, Australasian Association of Cataract & Refractive Surgeons, Australian Association of Surgeons, Australian Society of Ophthalmologists, Australian & New Zealand Society of Retina Specialists, Australian Council on Health Care Standards, Australian & New Zealand Glaucoma Interest Group (ANZGIG), New Zealand College of Ophthalmologists, International Society of Refractive Surgery or Australian Medical Association.
