Optometric Physicians OD

An optometric physician OD must have certain schooling in order to obtain a license. He or she must attend a four-year undergraduate program with a bachelor's degree and a four-year doctoral-level program focused on eye care, vision, and related systemic diseases. Sometimes, an extra year of residency training is required.

Special skills required include clinical skills, ability to effectively communicate with patients, and good time management skills, especially if you own your own practice. An optometric physician (OD) can perform laser surgery, prescribe corrective lenses and contacts, examine patients, and provide tests. These tests can range from simple wall charts to more invasive testing with machines.

Optometry professionals, optometrists, opticians, and ophthalmologists can all examine and fit patients for lenses. But only doctors can prescribe medication and perform surgery. Attention to detail and gentle bedside manner are key. These doctors are able to test for and treat diseases like glaucoma and cataracts, as well as other vision problems or infections pertaining to the retina and other components. Treatment plans vary by patient. Some optometric physicians are located within clinics and medical centers while others have their own private practice.

Services include vision care exams, prescriptions for glasses and contact lenses, surgery, and even emergency services. Many doctors are on call 24x7 to help any patient that has an eye emergency at night or on weekends. Related professions include optometrists, ophthalmologists, and opticians. All are dedicated to the eye and its related systems.

Patients who first call an optometric physician for vision treatment can expect to speak to a receptionist. This person can schedule appointments, take health insurance information, and provide other basic information.

When looking for an optometric physician OD, consider the professional's background and years in business. Inquire as to contact information, availability, healthcare insurance carriers, hours, and location. You want to stay within your budget, but you also want to choose an optometric physician in your community that has a topnotch reputation in the business with many satisfied clients. When choosing a reputable optometric physician, choose a few different offices, centers and clinics in your community to start with and contact each one. Ask how long the doctor has been in business and whether the clinic or center is part of a local, national or multinational entity. Also, make sure the doctor is properly licensed with many years of education under his or her belt. Ask about eye or vision care services to treat blurred vision, optic nerve damage, eye disease, retina impairments, infections, poor eyesight, therapy, cataracts, near sightedness, and far sightedness. Such professionals are trained to examine the eyes, diagnose impairments, perform routine vision care exams, and prescribe glasses, contact lenses and other corrective treatment, such as laser correction. To make sure you find the best optometric physician, make appointments with each one and interview each. Make sure the optometric physician offers what you need, such as affordable reading and driving eyewear, quality vision care treatment, and quick appointments. Upon your visit, you will first need an examination, which will help to diagnose blurred vision and other problems. You'll undergo some tests involving eye machines, software, and simple wall charts. When choosing an optometric physician, be sure to ask about insurance carriers, as well as hours and availability. Inquire about any emergency phone lines in case you have a problem with your eyes after hours.
