What’s an Optometrist?

An optometrist is an eye doctor. More specifically, optometrists are primary care physicians who treat, diagnose, and manage conditions of the eye.

Through comprehensive eye exams, optometrists evaluate your eye health and vision quality, then provide treatment as needed. State law defines the scope of medical care optometrists are allowed to provide.

Optometrists in Illinois CAN:

  • Perform various eye tests- retinoscopy, tonometry, keratometry, etc.
  • Prescribe and fit any ophthalmic lenses including contact lenses
  • Diagnose and treat any ocular abnormality, disease, or visual or musclar anomaly of the eye or visual system
  • Remove foreign bodies from the eye and adnexa
  • Write orders for laboratory and hospital tests

Optometrists in Illinois CANNOT:

  • Perform surgery
  • Use lasers
  • Prescribe oral steroids, or prescribe pharmaceutical agents for children under 5 of age, without consultation with a physician
  • Give injections except for anaphylaxis
  • Prescribe schedule 1 or 2 controlled substances

Licensed optometrists hold a Doctor of Optometry (OD) degree. In most cases, optometrists will have completed a bachelor’s degree in biology or a related science, followed by 4 years of professional training at an accredited optometry school.

Why are routine eye exams important?

Routine eye exams with your optometrists are important because eye diseases don’t always have noticeable symptoms until permanent damage is done. Your optometrist will be able to diagnose many serious health issues before you’re able to notice them and begin treatment before irreversible damage is done. Learn more about the importance of regular eye exams.
