Ophthalmologists are eye doctors. They can prescribe glasses or contact lenses and diagnose and treat eye diseases such as glaucoma. Unlike optometrists, they are medical doctors who can treat every kind of eye condition as well as operate on the eyes. If you have been injured due to negligence on the part of an ophthalmologist during an eye surgery, or they prescribed the wrong medication for you or misdiagnosed your condition you have rights.
