Ophthalmology is the medical and surgical diagnosis and treatment of eye diseases and related conditions. Physicians who specialize in ophthalmology, called Ophthalmologists, are generally categorized as surgeons because they are trained to perform surgery to repair or prevent vision problems. This is the major difference between Ophthalmologists and Optometrists, who are eye care providers also. Both Ophthalmologists and Optometrists can diagnosis and manage eye problems (in accordance with their training.) However, Ophthalmologists are specifically trained to perform eye surgery.
