Who is an optometrist?

Optometrists are health professionals trained to perform vision examinations, detect possible vision disorders – refractive errors (nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism) and correct refractive errors of the eye.

During the examination, the patient’s visual acuity is determined, then an autokeratorefractometer scan is performed, and the obtained refractive error values ​​are corrected with appropriate lenses, until the patient is completely satisfied with the vision.

After adequate correction, the optometrist gives the patient a prescription with the values ​​of the lens-glass that he needs, then the patient goes to the optician’s shop to make glasses.

If the optometrist notices during the examination that he cannot correct the patient up to 100% of vision and suspects one of the eye diseases, he does not treat it, but refers the patient to an ophthalmologist for examination.

An optometrist is a link between an ophthalmologist and an optician.

An optometrist is a great help for every ophthalmologist because he participates in the preparation of patients in the best possible way.
