This is a specialized field of the medical science that involves the eye, the nose, the ears, and the throat and mouth. Eye care is divided into two parts. First is the examination of the eyes by qualified eye doctors, and second is the treatment of the patients’ eyes through glasses and contact lenses. In general the patients suffering from vision problems or those whose vision has become blurry due to age, nearsightedness or farsightedness, cataracts or macular degeneration are referred to an eye doctor for treatment.

The basic aim of eye optometry is to improve the vision of the people by improving the visual acuity, and clarity of the eyes. Eye doctors are trained to use the latest technologies and equipments for their patients’ eyes, like laser equipment, and computerized tomography (CT) scanners. Eye doctors should not only know how to read and write but also should be familiar with the various types of lenses and contact lenses available for the treatment of eye conditions. These doctors have to maintain a very professional relationship with their patients by treating their eyes in the best possible manner. This is very important and a major responsibility of the eye doctor. If a doctor neglects his duty in this regard then it is obvious that there would be many accidents which could result in the death of a patient.
