While there are other eye care providers, they are not medical doctors.

An optometrist (O.D.), though trained to examine and diagnose eye disorders as well as to provide eyewear when appropriate, does not perform surgery, and in many states does not prescribe medication.

They do however perform valuable services and oftentimes work in close conjunction with an ophthalmologist.
