The eye is one of the most delicate organs of the Body. So you always have to take care of it with delicacy. Choosing the right eye care provider is a crucial decision, because you would trust your sense of sight to the specialist. So who are you going to go to; an optometrist or an ophthalmologist? Were they the same? The essay deals with optometry and ophthalmology, and the dividing line between the two fields.

An optometrist is an eye care specialist whose primary eye care services range from correcting, checking sight, diagnosing, and treating changes in vision to treatment. Contrary to popular belief, an optometrist is not a physician and is therefore not licensed in the UK to practice medicine and surgery. They are however crucial professionals in the care of pre-and post-eye surgery.
