Types of Eye Doctors
What is an Ophthalmologist?
An ophthalmologist is an M.D. (or Doctor of Medicine) or a D.O. (Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine). Ophthalmologists have completed four years of undergraduate school and four years of medical school. After completing medical school, M.D.s and D.O.s are general doctors. Following medical school, the M.D./D.O. has chosen to complete a medical residency for ophthalmology. From there the ophthalmologist may select to complete a fellowship program in an eye care subspecialty. In eye care, different eye diseases call for different treatments. The eye is very complex and different parts of the eye call for different training and expertise. Ophthalmologists who have completed a fellowship have specialized training in one or more of ten eye care subspecialties.
