Optometrist is a health care specialist whose main tasks are the examination and correction of human ophthalmic functions, and the matching, manufacturing and repairing of spectacles, contact lenses and other optic devices. Optometrist’s everyday duties also comprise the counselling of patients in need of optic devices and directing them to oculist’s examination.
An optometrist acts as an expert who solves vision problems that originate from environment and require knowledge about the perception of light, colour and forms.
