Ophthalmologist, Optometrist, or Optician?

Ophthalmologists, optometrists, and opticians are all eye care professionals, but what is the difference between the three?

Ophthalmologist
Ophthalmologist

An ophthalmologist is a doctor who specializes in vision and eye care. Both Dr. Craig D. Fishman and Dr. Jeffrey A. Sheridan are ophthalmologists who can diagnose eye diseases and conditions, perform eye surgery, and prescribe medication. Ophthalmologists have far more training than optometrists and opticians.

Optometrist
Optometrist

An optometrist can help you manage certain conditions with conservative treatment methods, such as eye glasses and contact lenses. An optometrist can diagnose eye diseases and conditions, but may not be able to treat what they discover during an eye exam. If you are experiencing an eye problem that requires advanced medical care, an optometrist will likely refer you to an ophthalmologist to develop an effective treatment plan.

Optician
Optician

An optician is a technician trained to design, verify, and fit eye glasses, contact lenses, and other eyesight corrective devices. Utilizing prescriptions supplied by ophthalmologists or optometrists, an optician does not conduct eye exams or write visual correction prescriptions. An optician cannot diagnose or treat eye disease.

Cataract removalAt Fishman & Sheridan eyeCare Specialists our eye doctors specialize in cataract surgery, but our team also strives to provide a full range of procedures to Leesburg, and the central Florida area, with state-of-the-art ophthalmology. Our practices include every service you would find at an optometrist or optician, with the benefit of the additional knowledge and skill of a doctor of ophthalmology.

Dr. Fishman is the co-owner of the first surgery center in Leesburg, FL, to dedicate resources exclusively to ophthalmic surgery, with a focus on advanced cataract procedures. At the state-of-the-art ambulatory surgery center accredited by the AAAHC, our team has been highly trained in all stages of eye surgery and can deliver outstanding care throughout the treatment process.

Floridians can feel confident in our trusted cataract surgeons, knowing their vision is in the hands of talented and seasoned professional ophthalmologists.

Providing Outstanding Results through Cataract Surgery

Our ophthalmology practice uses the latest technology to make certain that every cataract eye surgery we perform is safe and effective. We use small, self-sealing incisions to access the clouded crystalline lens, which is emulsified using sophisticated ultrasonic tools prior to removal. Finally, the crystalline lens is replaced with a state-of-the-art intraocular lens to restore your ability to focus.

Several years ago I met Dr. Sheridan AFTER another eye surgeon caused eye damage. He compassionately and expertly helped me through a terrible time and I believe helped save my sight. I have been a patient ever since. It is so reassuring to walk into a physician's office and know that he instantly recognizes you and clearly remembers your health issues. - Jel P.

Fishman & Sheridan eyeCare Specialists Eye Surgery Center

The Fishman & Sheridan eyeCare Specialists ophthalmology eye surgery center in Leesburg, FL, allows Dr. Fishman and Dr. Sheridan to provide patients solutions for a variety of eye care issues. 

Eyelid surgery offers life-changing benefits to those who are affected with drooping eyelids. This procedure not only rejuvenates your appearance, it can also improve your field of vision. Whether you are looking to address a drooping upper eyelid that impedes your vision, or create a more youthful appearance by reducing puffiness in your lower eyelid, our ophthalmologists can help.

A group of eye diseases that can cause vision loss and blindness by damaging the optic nerve, glaucoma can be detected during a comprehensive eye exam at one of our central Florida ophthalmology centers. Depending on the type and progression of the disease, treatment options can be as simple as non-surgical management with eye drops. Minimally invasive laser treatment can meet your needs if eye drops are ineffective. Our Leesburg eye surgery center can provide more complex but incredibly effective surgical treatments, if needed.

Intraocular lenses can restore blurred vision if the natural lens of your eye suffers from problems that cloud your eyesight. When the entire natural lens is replaced, you can expect significant vision improvement that can reduce or eliminate your need for contact lenses or eye glasses. The Fishman & Sheridan eyeCare Specialists in Leesburg, FL, offer a range of IOLs, which allows us to customize the treatment to your specific needs.

Patients with age-related macular degeneration (AMD) benefit greatly from early intervention, as currently, there is no cure for the disease. Both wet and dry AMD effect the retina, and have an impact on the vision and lifestyles of those afflicted. Fishman & Sheridan eyeCare Specialists have slowed the progression of AMD for countless patients in the central Florida area. We can treat the progression of macular degeneration and its impact on your retina and eyesight, so do not hesitate to contact us to review your treatment options today.
