Ophthalmologists are medical doctors who specialize in the

Ophthalmologists can diagnose and treat eye diseases, such as
diabetic retinopathy and glaucoma; prescribe eyeglasses and contact lenses;
treat eye injuries; and perform eye surgeries, such as cataract removal,
glaucoma correction, or LASIK surgery. Ophthalmologists may further specialize
in care of the retina (retina specialist) or in the care of children with eye
problems (pediatric ophthalmologist).
Ophthalmologists can be board-certified by the Board of
Ophthalmology, which is recognized by the American Board of Medical
