Ophthalmologists are Medical Doctors (M.D.) or Doctors of Osteopathy (D.O.) who specialize in the medical and surgical care of the eyes and in the prevention of eye disease and injury.

20 Reasons to See an Ophthalmologist

A recent survey found that only half of Americans see an eye care professional on a regular basis. Here’s what the other half needs to know.






Sunglasses are must-have eyewear. They help reduce brightness and protect your eyes and vision in any season.

Sunglasses are more than fashion accessories. They protect your eyes from ultraviolet (UV) rays, the radiation energy produced by the sun. These UV rays—including UVA and especially UVB—damage the eye’s surface tissues, cornea and lens. That damage can lead to cataractsmacular degeneration and other vision-stealing eye conditions. 

Don’t settle for less than 100% UV protection

When buying sunglasses, make sure they have a tag or sticker that says they provide 100 percent UV protection from all UV light. Some labels say “UV absorption up to 400nm.” This is the same thing as 100 percent UV absorption.
