Eye Doctor Guelph - There are a few different types of Optometrist or eye doctor in Guelph. I thought it would be helpful to write an article with definitions and explanations of all the different types of doctor and professionals associated with eye care. Everyone should ensure they have an eye doctor who they have regular check ups with. From the age of 50 the eyes can start to deteriorate. Cataracts are more likely to develop and a range of other conditions can materialize. If you make regular appointments with the eye doctor then they will be able to spot a problem immediately and begin treatment. If you can catch something early on then there may well be eye drops or small injections available that mean you don't have to undergo surgery at a later date. Anyway, here is a list of the different types of eye doctor.


An ophthalmologist is the person who we would generally refer to as the "eye doctor" because they are medically trained. They have to not only receive all the medical training that any other type of doctor does, but they must then go on to specialize in this area, receive further training and undertake a number of years gaining experience. An ophthalmologist is licensed to diagnose and treat all conditions of the eye. They can carry out all laser eye treatments too. There is another name for an ophthalmologist, and that is an oculist, although this is not such as commonly used term. Anyone with the job title of oculist can diagnose and treat eye conditions and carry out eye surgery.
