    Optometrists examine the internal and external structure of the eyes to diagnose eye diseases like glaucoma, cataracts and retinal disorders; systemic diseases like hypertension and diabetes; and vision conditions like nearsightednessfarsightednessastigmatism and presbyopia. They also determine the patient's ability to focus and coordinate the eyes, to judge depth and to see color accurately.


    Optometrists prescribe eyeglasses and contact lenses, low vision aids, vision therapy and medications to treat eye diseases as well as perform certain surgical procedures.

    What is an Optician? PDF Print E-mail Share

    An Optician is an eye care professional who specializes in the design, fitting, and dispensing of eyeglasses, contact lenses, low vision aids, and prosthetic ocular devices.

    Once a patient has been seen by a doctor, the optician is responsible for answering any questions about their refractive prescription and guiding the patient in the selecting the appropriate materials and treatments to go with a frame that compliments his or her style.

    At Eye Society, we cater to the personalization of your style; our professional opticians are your designated fashionists. We believe that frame selection is more than a process; it is an art. Your face is the canvas, your features its paint and with the right frame the final picture is an expression of you.
