      An ophthalmologist or eye doctor is a physician who specializes in eye disease prevention, diagnosis and treatment. During the appointment, visual acuity is checked, retinas are examined and intraocular pressure is measured, according to the patient’s needs. The ophthalmologist also prescribes additional tests or analyses, if necessary, and chooses a suitable treatment method. If the sole purpose of the visit is to check visual acuity or get a prescription for new eyeglasses, then it is advisable to make an appointment with an optometrist.

      An optometrist is a healthcare professional who performs a primary examination of the eyes and visual acuity. It is easier to get an appointment time with an optometrist than with an ophthalmologist. If the sole purpose of the appointment is to control visual acuity or get a prescription for new glasses, then a visit to an optometrist is enough. The optometrist is competent to assess, whether the patient needs an additional consultation with an ophthalmologist.
