Whether you are looking for eye care in Eldersburg, eyeglasses in Westminster, or contact lenses in Ellicott City, you will be dealing with one of the O’s in eye care.
In eye care there are three divisions of care. These are Optometrists, Ophthalmologists, and Opticians.
Optometrists are the primary care providers, in that they provide most of the coverage most of the patients need most of the time. The family doctor, or internist of eye care would be a good analogy. At Opti-Care we have provided these services for 34 years now.
Ophthalmologists are the surgeons. Cataract surgery, fixing retinal holes and tears, treating advanced macular degeneration, corneal transplants are some of the amazing advances that have been made in the last few decades. Some do general eye care as well but that is not the most efficient use of their time.At Opti-Care we work closely with ophthalmologists for your total eye care needs.
Opticians are the pharmacists of eye care. They fill prescriptions for glasses and contact lenses. They are in charge of the fashion and function of eye care. The prescription is only as good as the optician filling it. There is a lot of interaction between the three divisions of care. At Opti-Care we have some of the best most experienced opticians around.
