Who’s Who in Eye Care?

September Sight-Saving Seminars: Information is Power!

Ophthalmologist? Optometrist? Optician? Ophthalmic Medical Personnel? Oculist? Low Vision Rehabilitation Specialist? Have you ever wondered about the various titles, roles, education and licensing requirements of different eye care professionals? These are the people to whom we entrust the health of our eyes, and you may want to ask yourself – Who are they and how did they prepare for their responsible careers? According to Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, “An eye care professional is an individual who provides a service related to eyes or vision.” This can refer to any health care worker, from one with a high school diploma to a practitioner with a doctoral education and residency/fellowship training. Join POB at any one of three enlightening presentations in September to learn Who’s Who in Eye Care. Remember: Information is power.
