WHEN TO SEE AN OPHTHALMOLOGIST

 

Ophthalmologists are trained physicians and surgeons, who are well-versed in health conditions beyond just those related to the eye. This means they can diagnose and treat eye diseases and can sometimes diagnose systemic diseases that a specialist or primary care physician can help treat. The Academy recommends all healthy adults have their eyes dilated and see an ophthalmologist for a comprehensive eye exam by age 40. This can prevent vision problems later in life.
