Optometrists are trained to measure the optical power of the eye (refraction) and prescribe glasses and contact lenses to correct any errors of refraction such as long-sightedness, short-sightedness (myopia) and astigmatism. They are skilled in the detection and diagnosis of eye diseases and with additional training and qualifications can manage and treat a range of eye diseases and conditions.
