Oftentimes when you experience eye issues, you go to your eye doctor for a diagnosis. Once the eye doctor has examined you and finds that you have an issue he can’t treat, he will refer you to an ophthalmologist. Ophthalmologists can also perform eye exams and they have the ophthalmology training and skill to perform additional testing which can result in the diagnosis of eye conditions.
