Ophthalmologists provide patients with comprehensive eye and vision care. From general vision exams to surgical procedures, ophthalmologists are physicians and eye surgeons that attended medical school (4 years), completed an internship (1 year), residency (3-4 years), and sometimes a fellowship (1-2 years). These eye care specialists have earned either an M.D. or D.O. (Doctor of Osteopathy) degree in order to become an ophthalmologist. A specialist in the vision care industry, ophthalmologists must have an active medical practitioner license in any state they are currently practicing in, ensuring their legitimacy and certification as a medical professional
Ophthalmologist technologists often are trained on the job in entry level positions. However, completing a degree program can definitely help those seeking a job in this field. For those who wish to work as techs, they will need to understand both visual disorders and also, how to help those who are visually impaired understand the treatment methods available to them.
A technologist in the field of ophthalmology may find himself or herself learning a wide range of things through both educational paths and through on the job training. This is an area of great growth potential, and typically those who do take entry level positions move up fairly steadily in both position and pay.
An ophthalmologist technologist will work with an optician to make and fill the prescriptions that their patients require. Depending on the severity of the visual disorder in question, this treatment may vary.
Ophthalmology is the field of medicine which deals with the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the eye. As such, ophthalmology coding is the method of coding the diagnostic procedures for treatments pertaining to ophthalmology.
The branch of medical science which deals with the anatomy, particular diseases and physiological features of the eye is referred to as “Ophthalmology’. A doctor who is specialized in Ophthalmology is called an Ophthalmologist; Ophthalmologists are both medical and surgical specialists since they perform eye surgeries.
The term “Ophthalmology” is derived from the Greek terms ‘ophthalmos’ which means the eye and ‘logia’ which refers to study. It therefore quite literally is an exhaustive study of the anatomy of the eyes and the diseases which affect eyesight. The eyes of humans and those of the animal kingdom, surprisingly, have only minor differences although the functions of both are quite complex and some of the diseases that affect mankind also affect animals – e.g. cataract.
