Optometry is a health care profession that involves examining the eyes and applicable visual systems for defects or abnormalities, as well as diagnosing and managing eye disease. Optometrists are healthcare professionals who provide primary eye care through comprehensive eye examinations to detect and treat various visual abnormalities and eye diseases such as diabetes, glaucoma, macula degeneration, dry eye, and other autoimmune and systemic diseases. As an optometrists I co-manage with other health care professionals as well as ophthalmologist for surgical eye procedures.
