A medical or osteopathic doctor who specializes in eye and vision care is known as an ophthalmologist. In terms of training and what they can diagnose and treat, ophthalmologists differ from optometrists and opticians. The future holds both potential and difficulties for the field of ophthalmology. Future ophthalmic practices will be rewarded for providing high-quality and efficient treatment, and they will need to be prepared to support developing, integrated care systems. Standardized care processes based on established practice guidelines and adequately matching the degree of treatment to the expertise of the health care practitioner are all part of high-quality, efficient care. Over the years, ophthalmology has been blessed with leadership and vision that has allowed us to adapt, prosper, and improve the population's eye health. These qualities should be beneficial to us in the future.
