Ophthalmology
In brief: Not in depth
Optometrists study eyeglass correction and contact lense fitting.
They get a smattering of eye disease and think they know a lot. But only ophthalmologists study these things in depth with approximately 8 more years of study than optometrists. It is best, if you have an eye problem to get an ophthalmologists opinion and evaluation first.
