An optometrist is a doctor of optometry or OD Optometrist. An optometrist is not a medical doctor like an ophthalmologist, but they do diagnose and treat vision problems, eye diseases and related conditions, and prescribe eyeglasses, contact lenses, and medications to treat eye disorders. They do not perform surgery, but often provide patients with pre- and postsurgical care.
