optometrist vs. opthalmologist
In response to 143061: Dr. Kale, posted by Clare B on Saturday, 26 January 2019, at 3:33 p.m.
Dr. Kale is an optometrist. Optometry(OD degree, not DO or MD)are the primary care specialists of eye care. Opthalmologists are the surgical specialists for cataracts, retinal surgery,etc. If there's a specific eye problem that's been being treated by an ophthalmologist, it's probably best to continue that way.
