Some optometrist develop and implement ways to protect workers eyes from on-the-job injury; or specialize in contact lenses, sports vision, or vision therapy.
Vision screenings that are performed by a school nurse or your employer are not the same as comprehensive eye exams. Eye doctors check for eye and other diseases that have no early symptoms, but should nevertheless be treated as early as possible to avoid vision loss.
If you plan to wear contact lenses, be sure you say so when you schedule an eye exam. Your eye doctor will need extra time for a contact lens fitting, which includes measurements of your eye's surface.
