Ophthalmologist - Definition


Definition


An ophthalmologist is a doctor specialized in all the diseases and various conditions affecting the eye and causing vision problems. By using special devices enabling the study of vision and condition of the different structures of the eye, an ophthalmologist can investigate problems and decide on which correction method to use. These specialists are notably responsible for prescribing corrective lenses adapted to different vision problems, such as myopia, hypermetropia, presbyopia, or astigmatism. They can also carry out eye surgery, such as crystalline lens replacement in cataract cases, the most commonly performed operation in France.
