Do you know the difference between an ophthalmologist and an optometrist?
Find out who is looking after your eyes…
Optometrists and ophthalmologists deal with different aspects of eye care. Optometrists are eye care providers who examine the eyes and prescribe and fit glasses or contact lenses. Optometrists can detect problems with your eye and they may refer you to an ophthalmologist for treatment.
An ophthalmologist is a medical doctor and a surgeon who has specialized to diagnose and treat eye disease. Our ophthalmologists are trained though the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Ophthalmologists (RANZCO). It takes more than 18 years of full time study and training to become an ophthalmologist.
Dr Pam Weir and Dr Andrea Zarkovic at MyEyeSpecialist are experienced, dedicated ophthalmologists who provide comprehensive medical and surgical eye care. We have extensive experience with full range of premium intraocular lenses for patients who want to be independent of glasses following cataract surgery. Whether you have concerns about your vision, require monitoring and treatment for glaucoma or macular degeneration, or are bothered by your eyelids, you can be confident that we have the expertise to help you.
