What is a Doctor of Optometry?
An optometrist, or Doctor of Optometry (OD), is the primary health care professional for the eye. Through comprehensive eye exams, Doctors of Optometry examine, diagnose, treat, and manage diseases, injuries, and disorders of the visual system, the eye, and associated structures as well as identify related systemic conditions affecting the eye. Doctors of Optometry prescribe and fit eyeglasses and contact lenses to correct vision disorders. Additionally certain Doctors of Optometry specialize in low vision aids, vision therapy and medicines to treat eye diseases.
Doctors of Optometry have completed undergraduate education in a college or university and four years of professional education at a college of optometry, leading to the doctor of optometry (OD) degree. Some Doctors of Optometry complete an optional residency in a specific area of practice. They are eye health care professionals state-licensed to diagnose and treat diseases and disorders of the eye and visual system.
The New Jersey Society of Optometric Physicians (NJSOP) is made up of statewide Doctors of Optometry, from every county in the state.
