In brief: Yes bet . . .
Opticians are skilled craftsman that construct eyeglasses and deal with the mechanics of lenses.
They are not medical doctors. However they have seen many eye patients and might have some thoughts on a visual disturbance. They cannot actually diagnosis and certainly cannot treat these condtions. Only an ophthalmologist is the best to do this.
