Four amazingly skilled and experienced optometrists Dr. Dhimiter Llambiri, Dr. Monica Tadros, Dr. Dana Stern and Dr. Leah Shanfeld see patients daily for eye examinations and condition treatment at Everyone Eyecare in New Braunfels, TX, San Antonio, TX, and Levittown, NY.

Our doctors of optometry want to talk today about the value of quality optometrists, what an optometrist is, and what this doctor treats.

What Is an Optometrist?

Optometrists are highly skilled and educated to diagnose most eye-related diseases or conditions. However, this doctor is not a surgeon, so if you need eye surgery, this doctor will refer you to an eye surgeon or ophthalmologist.

The optometrist uncovers the reasons for your visual disturbances. This eye care professional is not a medical doctor but a Doctor of Osteopathy with four to eight years of education.

Job Description of Optometrists

  • Performs eye exams
  • Prescribes common treatments
  • Order glasses
  • Prescribe contact lenses
  • Treat low vision
  • Order medications for treating eye disease

What Can Optometrists Treat?

Our skilled optometrists at Everyone Eyecare in Braunfels, TX, San Antonio, TX, and Levittown, NY, can diagnose and treat nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, double vision, presbyopia, and color blindness, as well as eye infections and inflammations, glaucoma, cataracts, retina problems, and macular degeneration.

Optometrists tell you you need regular eye exams to catch impending eye diseases and start treatment immediately.

Children have their first eye exam at birth and then every two years. Adults 18–55 need an eye exam by optometrists at least every two years.

Optometrists should examine your eyes yearly if you are over 55 due to a higher risk of eye problems.

Our optometrist says you must schedule eye exams more often if you wear contact lenses, visual aids, or prescription eyeglasses. Your optometrist can help you determine how often to schedule your eye exam.

Taking Care of Your Eyes

Our four optometrists urge you to take excellent care of your eyes by reporting visual changes to your doctor. Wearing eyeglasses or contact lenses means you need a regular eye exam more often.

If you experience double vision, blurry vision, persistent eye pain, unusual sensitivity to light, worsening vision, or eye redness, you should alert your optometrist and schedule an appointment as soon as possible.
