What does an Optometrist do?

Optometrists are primary health providers, often being the first point of professional contact for people experiencing problems with their eyes or having difficulty seeing. Optometrists have a unique role in providing accessible and vital eye care to the community. Apart from general practice, optometry is the only profession to have Medicare rebates without the need for a referral.

Optometrists are experts in the optics of lenses, eye health and visual performance; they assess ocular health and diagnose ocular disease. They may also manage many ocular diseases but do not perform invasive surgical interventions (eg cataract surgery, retinal detachments) but do perform foreign body removal. Where clinically necessary, optometrists prescribe spectacles, contact lenses, sunglasses, protective eyewear and devices for the visually impaired.

Some optometrists specialise in work with the elderly, children or persons who are partially sighted. Some specialise in the treatment of ocular conditions through prescribing therapeutic medications. Other specialist areas include contact lenses, sport vision, visual ergonomics, colour vision and vision therapy.
