Optometrists

Optometrists are the major providers of primary vision care as independent, primary health care providers who examine, diagnose, and manage diseases and disorders of the visual system, the eye and associated structures.

Optometrists also do testing to determine the patient’s ability to focus and coordinate the eye, judge depth perception, and see colors accurately.


The Practice of optometry offers independence, flexibility, and diversity, and optometrists may choose to practice in inner cities, suburbs or rural areas.

Opportunities exist in solo or group practices, multidisciplinary practice, health maintenance organizations, clinical or hospital settings, and government within the Public Health Service. Teaching and research offer added opportunities.
