Who is an Optometrist?

A large number of people do not understand the exact definition of Optometrist ( 眼科視光師 ).

Hopefully the few explaination below could show a better explaination:

  • In Malaysia, all optometrists are University educated (Minimum 4 years) and equipped with proper clinical skill. They are the primary eye care provider regulated by the Malaysian Optical Council within the Ministry of Health.

  • Optometry is a healthcare profession that is autonomous, educated, and regulated (licensed /registered).

  • Optometrists are the primary healthcare practitioners of the eye and visual system who provide comprehensive eye and vision care, which includes refraction (the checking of refractive error of the eye ) and dispensing, detection / diagnosis and management of disease in the eye, and the rehabilitation of conditions of the visual system.

  • While most optometrists practice in communities and serve the general public, some optometrists specialise in work with the elderly, children, or partially sighted persons who need specialised visual devices.

  • Some Optometrist may be involved in development and implementing ways to protect workers’ eyes from on-the-job strain or injury, and specialise in contact lenses, sports vision, or vision therapy.
