    What is the difference between an optometrist and an ophthalmologist?

    Optometrists and ophthalmologists are both eye care professionals. There are some differences between them, though.

    Optometrists cover primary care for the eyes. They conduct vision exams and write new prescriptions for eyeglasses and contact lenses. They often assess patients for signs of dry eye syndrome and glaucoma, a condition in which high eye pressure damages the ocular nerve. Optometrists teach patients about eye health and create eye treatment plans. After earning an undergraduate degree, they attend optometry school to obtain an O.D., or Doctor of Optometry.

    "So an ophthalmologist is basically the same thing, right?"

    Not quite. Ophthalmologists are specialists who treat not just vision problems, but also a range of conditions related to the eye. For example, doctors of ophthalmology conduct eye surgery for conditions like glaucoma or macular degeneration, and they are often the doctors who perform Lasik surgery. They develop comprehensive treatment plans for eye diseases. Instead of earning an O.D. degree, ophthalmologists attend medical school, and then undergo additional training in eye care.

    Is an eye exam painful?

    Nope! Eye exams are almost always easy and painless. Most eye exams begin with your doctor asking you questions about any symptoms you have been having, your medical history, and your current medications.

    Then, the doctor will test your visual acuity and visual field to see if you may need eyelgasses or contact lenses. Similar to the at-home visiosn tests, the doctor will ask you to identify letters listed on a chart approximately 10 feet away to asses your vision in each eye. If necessary, your eye doctor may conduct a refraction assessment. Refractors (those giant, metal goggles often associated with the eye doctor's office) correct errors in your vision, like astigmatism, by properly focusing light on your cornea, the back part of your eye. Eye doctors use refraction assessments to discover your lens prescription and fit you for glasses.

    Your doctor may use a slit lamp, a tool that helps examine the inner structures of your eye, like your retina. They can also treat any physical symptoms you might be experiencing, like a stye - a painful bump near the outside of the eyelid.

    Most eye doctors will also measure your eye pressure to detect the presence of glaucoma. For this, doctors use a tool called tonometry, which uses a quick puff of air to measure your eye pressure. But don't worry! Most doctors will give you a numbing eyedrop before tonometry--making the process completely painless!

    What do you need for an eye exam?

    Just yourself (and some information about your medical history).

    During your video consult, your doctor will ask you questions about your current symptoms and medical history. They may ask you to re-position your webcam in order to better evaluate any symptoms you are having. Come prepared to ask questions and get to the bottom of your symptoms.

    What is a dilated eye exam?

    Dilation is usually the last part of an annual eye check up (don't worry, it's painless) and is the best way for eye doctors to check for early warning signs of eye diseases.

    Usually, your eye doctor will give you an eye drop that will dialate, or widen, your pupil. Your doctor can then examine the inner parts of your eye. Dilation allows eye doctors to catch eye diseases before they begin to cause serious symptoms and develop a treatment plan that's right for you!

    What is Chronic Dry Eye or Dry Eye Syndrome?

    Dry eye syndrome is a common condition that occurs when your eyes cannot produce enough tears (tears aren't just for crying, after all, they keep your eyes moist and lubricated). Common symptoms include stinging, burning, or itchy eyes, eye inflammation or redness, light sensitivity, eye fatigue, and blurred vision. Over time, dry eye syndrome can cause discomfort and even eye damage.

    Connect with a licensed eye doctor today on Sesame to who can diagnose dry eye syndrome and come up with a treatment plan that works for you--all from the comfort of your home. If necessary, your eye doctor may schedule a follow up appointment or write a prescription. All prescriptions are at the discretion of your doctor.
