Choosing an appropriate eye doctor may be confusing for some people who don’t really understand the differences between optometrists, ophthalmologists and opticians.
In this new All About Vision topic, associate editor Gary Heiting, OD, explains those differences, including educational requirements for each profession.

Vision therapy addresses conditions such as amblyopia or “lazy eye.”
New information in All About Vision’s recently expanded UV protection and sunglasses article also mentions potential harm from the sun’s high-energy visible (HEV) radiation or “blue light.”
If you have a full schedule of outdoor summer activities looming, this is even more reason to wear high-quality sunglasses with 100 percent UV protection. Many sunglasses now also offer protection from HEV radiation.
