Eye Care Providers Introduction
When you need to visit an eye-care professional, it is important to make sure that you see the person who is most qualified to take care of any concerns or problems that you may have regarding your eyes. The three main types of eye-care professionals are ophthalmologists, optometrists, and opticians. Ocularists and ophthalmic technicians work closely with these specialists. Your primary-care provider (PCP), internist, pediatrician, general practice physician (GP), urgent-care doctor, or emergency-room doctor can assist you with a referral to the appropriate eye-care professional.
