Many people do not realize that Euro Optometric is actually an independent optometrist specialty located in England. Optometrist is a general medical doctor who has chosen to specialize in eye care and vision correction. Euro Optometrist is one of the most popular and prominent ophthalmologists across the United Kingdom and Europe. Their specialty is optometry, which is the application of corrective lenses to improve your vision. Some common eye disorders that optometrist treat are refractive errors (farsightedness and nearsightedness), astigmatism, presbyopia and prescriptive eye surgery such as LASIK and PRK.

A qualified optometrist will always treat the patient as an individual and will look at each case on its own merit. When you visit a UK optometrist for your vision correction, you will have a complete eye exam, which should include an eye examination and tests relating to your visual acuity, your peripheral vision, your eyes sensitivity to light and your comfort level. The optometrist will make a detailed report of what findings from the tests and examinations show and recommend a course of treatment for your specific needs. In many cases, patients are advised to choose corrective lenses over glasses. In some cases, patients may also be advised to wear contact lenses or bifocal reading glasses.
The majority of optometrists offer the same services and find that many patients find that going to the same doctor for services such as eye exams and prescriptions is more convenient than having them done at another location. In addition to being in the same office, many optometrists are able to arrange for a convenient follow-up appointment. This ensures that the patient does not need to rush back to see the optometrist after receiving treatment because he or she was waiting too long for their appointment.
