What is an Ophthalmologist?

An Ophthalmologist is a medical graduate who has undertaken further studies in the diseases and surgery of the eye. Ophthalmologists perform microsurgery for diseases such as cataract, glaucoma and squint as well as laser surgery for the treatment of diabetes.

Although Ophthalmologists prescribe glasses, they do not dispense or manufacture them. That is the role of an Optometrist.
