Ophthalmologists are the most highly trained and revered practitioners in the field of eye care. The difference between an ophthalmologist and an optometrist is commonly not understood.  Ophthalmologists are fully licensed medical doctors who have had at least 8 years of medical training. Following medical school, ophthalmologists undergo a four-year residency, giving them the skill to diagnose and treat eye diseases. In addition, they can perform complex surgery on the eye to repair a host of conditions such as detached retina, cataracts, LASIK/PRK and glaucoma procedures, just to name a few.
