Can An Md Not Certified In Ophthalmology Write A Perscription For Eyeglasses
Ophthalmology: Not typically. An ophthalmologist is usually an MD or an DO after he/she completed medical school and then a residency in ophthalmology / eye surgery. An MD without training in ophthalmology is likely not well versed or trained to provide a prescription for eye glasses. Optometrists are also trained for this as well so you are better off looking for a doctor focusing in eye care. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Eye doctor at a store front business says that it is the law and required to have eyes dilated during a regular eye exam for eyeglasses. Is this true?
You can expect: to have your vision and eye pressure checked. Also, you should expect to have your pupils dilated so they can evaluate the health of your retina and optic nerve. The dilation lasts for several hours afterwards. Some special pictures might be taken as well. Bring your current glasses with you if any, and previous eye exam records if there were any issues. Good luck. ...Read more

I am in Taipei for about two weeks. I have noticed my vision has changed since I have been here. Everything is a little less focused with my glasses. Should I be worried before I go home Friday? I scheduled an eye doctor appointment on Monday.

Dry eye is a possible cause - this could be caused by environmental changes as well as time spent in airplanes where the air is very dry. Try using some over-the-counter artificial tears several times a day and watch for improvement. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My eye doctor is unable to see me in time for my new prescription for glasses before I move. What is the best solution for this?
To some degree: If your glasses prescription is known, your contact prescription should be as well. If the eye doctor just looks at the glasses with his/her naked eye, he/she may get a rough idea of your prescription. If they look at the glasses with a lens meter, he/she will know the glasses' exact prescription, and have a good idea of the contact prescription based on that. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
